The boil water ad­vi­sory for North Cowichan’s South End water sys­tem has been lifted.

A state­ment from the Mu­nic­i­pal­ity of North Cowichan said Is­land Health has con­firmed that there is no longer any ev­i­dence of bac­te­rial con­tam­i­na­tion. Chlo­ri­na­tion of the water will con­tinue as a pre­cau­tion­ary mea­sure.

Thou­sands of homes and busi­nesses in the south­ern part of the mu­nic­i­pal­ity, around Somenos and Quamichan lakes and near the bound­ary with Dun­can, were af­fected by the ad­vi­sory af­ter bac­te­ria was de­tected in a mu­nic­i­pal reser­voir.
