NOW LIFTED: McBride under a Boil Water Advisory
NOW LIFTED: McBride under a Boil Water Advisory.
Lab tests to determine the safety of the water must be performed before the boil water notice can be lifted.
The Village says Coliform and E. coli counts were not detected.
Interior Health has been consulted and is fully involved in this notification.
The public will be notified when conditions allow the notice to be rescinded.
“Owners of all public facilities must post boil water notices at all sinks or drinking water fountains accessible to the public (alternatively, public fountains and taps may be turned off)”.
The advisory will remain in effect until another public notice is issued, according to the Village’s statement.
People should use boiled water for drinking purposes, food preparation, coffee machines, brushing teeth, infant formulas, making ice, and washing fruits and vegetables.

Austin Water said it will update the public when the water is safe for consumption and no longer requires boiling.
