You’ll never guess who he is Lower Nicola Waterworks administrator Carla Beacon said the advisory, which was issued by the Interior Health Authority earlier today, is due to a bacteriological contamination caused by the recent flooding of Guichon Creek.
Leroy Wagner, chairman of the water board for the system, said he shut off a pump house and a tank from the system due to the rushing water breaking a waterline under Marshall Road.
Wagner said he’s not sure exactly where the contamination is coming from, believing he might have been able to shutdown flow to the pump house just before the line broke.
He said more testing will be done in the coming weeks.
