Thornhill residents will have to continue to boil their water for the time being.
The Regional District of Kitimat Stikine says it’s waiting on test results after staff disinfected the main water storage facilities and flushed both the upper and lower distribution systems twice.
Roger Tooms is with the Regional District of Kitimat Stikine and he says out of 47 tests, only two are showing signs of coliform bacteria.
While these tests are being processed, officials say they want to take a precautionary approach and advise residents in Upper and Lower Thornhill, Queensway, and Copper Mountain to continue boiling their water.
The boil water advisory was issued October 10th after total coliform bacteria was detected in the distribution system.
