The water in both the St. Mary and Maxwell water systems is safe to drink.
The Maxwell system is running on back up power to maintain sufficient chlorine levels.
Power has been restored to the St. Mary Lake water treatment plant.
Operations crews are working around the clock to provide safe drinking water water; however, they have not yet been able to reach all areas to assess the extent of the damage. To report damage to water system infrastructure, please call the office at 250-537-9902 or the emergency pager at 1-888-777-4054.
NSSWD Management would like to express our sincere appreciation to the operators working to ensure our community has safe drinking water during this time.
