Water Quality Advisory

Living in North Vancouver and the Vancouver area means rain is a frequent reality.

Water turbidity (cloudy water) can increase as a result of extremely heavy rainfall on the steep mountainous terrain above the region's water supply lakes. Turbidity occurs when sediment is transported into water reservoirs by runoff.

Water quality in Metro Vancouver's source reservoirs is closely monitored. In times of increased turbidity disinfection levels are increased to maximize water quality. Boil water advisories may be issued by the Chief Medical Officer on a situational basis.
