The Skidegate Band Council has asked residents to conserve water.
The council was forced to shut down the community’s water treatment plant Monday afternoon when the water source became too muddy.
With more heavy rain expected today, the band council says the plant may be off line for another 24 hours.
Residents are being asked to use water for cooking, drinking, and the toilet only. Short showers are advised and no laundry for the time being.
