Increased risk of contamination to drinking-water wells in Metro Vancouver, Fraser Valley
Sunday, December 5, 2021 12:15 PM
The Province is advising owners of private drinking-water wells in flooded areas in the Metro Vancouver Regional District and Fraser Valley Regional District that their wells may be at increased risk of contamination.
This is due to potential overflow or failures of liquid manure storage systems because of high precipitation caused by recent storms.
The Ministry of Environment and Climate Change Strategy is working with agriculture operators to reduce the risks of liquid manure overflow. See the order here: https://www2.gov.bc.ca/gov/content/environment/air-land-water/spills-environmental-emergencies
The Ministry of Health is advising residents who own or are responsible for a private drinking-water well that has been affected by flooding to assess their well and take action to protect the people who use water from the well.
Everyone must respect evacuation orders. Never re-enter the flood zone unless emergency management officials have indicated that you may do so.
Translation files are incoming and will be available shortly.
