A message from the Township of Langley:

 

As a public health precaution, Township of Langley and the Fraser Health Authority remind residents in the Aldergrove area of the Township of Langley to boil their drinking water for at least one minute. This precautionary measure remains in effect and should be followed until further notice.

 

A low level of coliform bacteria was detected at a water sampling point in a local neighbourhood in Aldergrove. Regular updates will be available as further testing is done and until the precautionary boil water advisory is canceled. Two consecutive clear test results, 24 hours apart, must be obtained before consideration will be given to cancelling the advisory. The earliest possible test result date is Tuesday, July 8. Visit tol.ca for updates.

 

Residents are reminded to bring their water to a rapid, rolling boil for at least one minute prior to using it for domestic purposes, including drinking, making infant formula and juices, cooking, brushing teeth, washing raw foods and making ice. Alternatively, residents may use bottled water.

 

The precautionary boil water advisory applies to the municipal water supply for the Aldergrove area managed by the Township of Langley; and the boundaries of the area affected include:

 

  • East of 260 St and west of 276 St
  • North of 24 Ave and south of 36 Ave

 

This does not affect other water systems managed by the Township of Langley.
