The boil water advisory for much of Sumas Prairie has been rescinded.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.
In recent weeks a drinking water supply station had been set up for residents to use. Monday is the final day for locals to use the station.
💧Today is the last day of the potable drinking water supply station for residents at the north-east corner of No. 2 Road & Boundary Road— City of Abbotsford (@City_Abbotsford) December 20, 2021
The water station is open 8am -12:30pm and 1:00 to 4:30pm. Residents will need to bring their own water containers.https://t.co/xEk5TTnByS pic.twitter.com/4LyqGYNLXl
