Water Advisory lifted in Port Edward

Divya Gill

The District of Port Edward is giving residents the green light for drinking municipal tap water again.

Water advisories have been on and off over the last month but on Tuesday the district informed residents water treatment plant repairs are complete and the turbidity levels in the water are very low. 

However, a Water Quality Advisory remains in place up the road in Prince Rupert.

It was issued due to last week's heavy rainfall.

The city of Prince Rupert is urging people with weakened immune system  including children and pregnant women to boil their water before consuming it.
