Month-long water quality advisory still in effect for Rupert residents – Prince Rupert Northern View


A water quality advisory (WQA) for Prince Rupert is still ongoing, the City advised residents in a Sept. 18 statement.

“Please be advised that the City’s Water Quality Advisory remains in effect over the weekend and until further notice, due to continued turbidity levels that are slightly higher than acceptable limits,” the City of Prince Rupert notice said.

The initial WQA was issued on Aug. 18, a month ago, during the wettest August since preciptation data was first recorded in 1909.

City staff have conducted a fly-over of the watershed and identified a few small landslides that have contributed to elevated turbidity persisting longer than expected. The city issued statement said although turbidity has overall slowly been decreasing since the advisory was put into effect, it is still not at low enough levels where the advisory can be removed by Northern Health’s drinking water officer.

City Communications Manager Veronika Stewart said, sampling is completed twice a day and takes roughly half a day to obtain results. Testing is done locally by Northern Labs.

“Unfortunately the Water Quality Advisory is continuing, and although the situation overall is improving, turbidity is still a bit too high to remove it,” Stewart said.

“A WQA is a step down from a full scale Boil Notice for the entire community,” Stewart said. “It’s the lowest form of water advisory where boiling is recommended for infants, pregnant women, the elderly and those with compromised immunity.”

The precautionary measure is issued to residents considered most ‘at risk’. A WQA indicates a level of risk associated with consuming the drinking water, but the conditions do not warrant a boil water notice or do-not-use water notice, the City notice said.

“As soon as we are able to remove the advisory, an update will be provided via the City’s official channels, including our emergency alert system.”

The City advises as a precaution that all water intended for drinking, washing fruits and vegetables, making beverages or ice and brushing teeth, should be boiled for one minute, then cooled and placed in a food grade storage container.

“Owners of public facilities are requested to post Water Quality Advisories at all sinks or drinking water fountains accessible to the public, alternatively, public fountains and taps should be turned off,” the City said. “As opportunities arise they must also advise their clientele verbally of the Water Quality Advisory.”

There is currently no evidence of increased risk to water users, and additional testing is being conducted to continually monitor water quality and adjust recommendations accordingly. This advisory remains in effect until another public notice, amendment or rescindment is directed by the Drinking Water Officer at Northern Health Authority.

Installing an Inline Refrigerator Water Filter

Hi, Wayne here from Sears PartsDirect. Today we’re going to show you how to install an inline water filter on your refrigerator. If your refrigerator doesn’t have an internal water filter, you can install an inline filter on the supply tubing to remove chlorine and contaminants. Be sure to choose a filter that is certified to NSF standards. Using a helper, carefully pull the refrigerator forward to access the water supply tubing.Measure the diameter of water supply tubing connected to the back of your refrigerator. Common water supply tubing sizes are 1/4-inch or 3/8-inch. Water tube fittings on most inline filters fit 1/4-inch copper or plastic tubing. Next, you’ll choose a place to mount the water filter. Mounting the filter to the wall behind the refrigerator will protect it from damage as you move the refrigerator in and out of its space. You need these supplies for most inline filter installations: utility knife, towel, water bucket, work gloves, filter mounting supplies, adapters for the water supply tubing if necessary, hand tools if necessary. Now we’ll get started. Attach the filter mounting hardware to the wall. Unplug the refrigerator and shut off the water supply. Cleanly cut the water supply tube in the spot where you want to install the filter. Clean the ends of the cut water tubing. With the filter’s water flow pointed in the right direction, push the inlet end of the water tube into the fitting until it bottoms out. Tug the water tube to make sure it’s securely connected. To remove carbon dust and residue, hold the water filter outlet over the bucket and open the water supply valve to flush 2 gallons of water through the filter. Shut off the water supply valve. Connect the outlet tube to the filter outlet fitting and tug the water tube to make sure it’s securely connected. Open the water supply valve and check the outlet water tubes for leaking. Push the tubes further in if they leak. Attach the water filter to the mounting hardware on the wall. Plug the refrigerator back in and push it back into place. Replace the water filter every 6 months, or more often if water flow slows noticeably. Remember to flush the new filter. For convenience, set up a water filter subscription to get a new filter shipped every 6 months. You can do that when you buy the filter. We hope this video helps you out today.
