there is an advisory from GVRD for people not to drink tap water for the time being. Here's the link...

I couldn't find the boiled-water advisory if I tried, it should be front and center! :thdn:

Thanks for the link, pinkfreud. I didn't know that boiled water should be cooled thoroughly before drinking. I'm sure supermarkets are doing well in selling bottled water now.

Here in the colonies experienced some wind and some rain also. Don't think there was a water advisory though. Whatever would we dilute our fish juice with? :wink:

Seeing as how the whole GVRD is under the boil-water advisory I wouldn't drink it. I don't know how the Coquitlam resevoir is, but the Seymour and Capilano watersheds are obviously shot.

we been drinking bought water for the last 12 yrs anyhow. One good thing about that is we always have between 30 and 60 gallons of drinking water for any emergency that might happen.

However, we have been brushing teeth with tap water before we heard of the advisory, but on the plus side, the water is completely clear, none of the brown they been showing on TV.

Put it in a cup and look for brown. Go ahead, the risk is mild, but if you've got those big jugs in your house anyways, just use that.

I think they're stating that as a safety precaution, so that people don't burn themselves. When they write these things, they can't assume eveyone has common sense.

All of Marpole was in Safeway last night buying water when I stopped in.

Ya, the bacteria are colourless. The brown colour is from the dirt and muck, which is a red flag that the water might contain higher than normal levels of bacteria. Even if your water isn't brown, I would do as MacNews says and use your bottled water.
