Fighting contaminated water problem at Fort. St John Hospital and Peace Villa Residential Care Centre, Northern Health collaborated with city officials and the BC Centre for Disease Control. The care center was subjected to boil water advisory.
However, almost after a day, when it was found that the water was safe for drinking and no more contaminated the advisory was ended in the center.
It has been reported that the notice for boil water advisory has been lifted, following reports put forth by BC Centre for Disease control’s water lab, which affirmed that the water is now free from contamination. The water can now be used.
Although Northern Health has not commented on the source of contamination, Fort St. John Mayor Lori Ackerman asserted that the contamination could have been due to faulty sample or bacterial contamination, especially E. coli.
Ackerman said, “What northern health is doing is both cautious and prudent, and I applaud them in taking action in making sure that the patients and the workers at the facility are safe”. Further, she added that even their staff was supporting Northern Health.
An investigation was commissioned in the city, which confirmed that the city water has not been affected by the contamination.
