The Town of Gibsons remains on Sunshine Coast Regional District water as efforts continue to trace the source of E.coli contamination found early this month in the municipal water system.
Speaking at council’s June 24 committee of the whole meeting, director of engineering Dave Newman said the Parkland reservoir had been drained and a professional assessment was being done “to review the construction of the reservoir and to establish if there’s any possible points of entry for contamination.”
With the Parkland reservoir commissioned in 2012, Newman said the Town was looking at warrantees on the tank that could apply if it is determined that’s where the problem originated.
He said he was hoping that emergency chlorination would be installed by the middle of the following week (July 2) so that zone one could be taken off SCRD water.
