The boil water advisory for areas of Sumas Prairie has now been rescinded.

The boil water advisory for much of Sumas Prairie has been rescinded.

The city of Abbotsford made the announcement on Monday (Dec. 20).

The notice applies to the following areas: Angus Campbell Roadd to the west, Highway 1 to the north, Chilliwack/Abbotsford border to the east, Canada/US Border and Old Yale Rd to the south.

According to the city of Abbotsford, consecutive sampling results show that the water in the Sumas Prairie system meets regulatory water quality requirements and normal water usage can be resumed.

The water no longer needs to be boiled prior to use for drinking, food preparation and other domestic purposes.

The advisory had originally been put in place on Nov. 18 following the flooding that hit that region hard.
