Any water systems that experience disruption to regular operations, such as loss of treatment, loss of pressure, loss of power, loss of source or loss of system integrity should implement their emergency response procedures immediately.

This includes issuing public notifications such as boil water notices, water quality advisories, or do not use orders, as appropriate.

Prior to resuming normal operations, water suppliers should undertake remedial actions such as flushing, disinfection and resampling as required.

The following documents provide information which may assist operators to address, remediate and manage operations to ensure public health safety, during and after wildfire events. 


As a step towards reconciliation, Interior Health acknowledges the land that we live, work, and play on as the traditional territories of the Dakelh Dene, Ktunaxa, Nlaka’pamux, Secwepemc, St’at’imc, Syilx and Tsilhqot’in peoples. It is with humility that we continue to strengthen our relationships with the First Nation, Métis, and Inuit peoples of the interior.
