Holiday Water - BC - Summer, 2015



Here's the staggering list of Vacation spot Boil Water and Water Quality Advisories in British Columbia. There are now over 220 of them. In fact, water advisories in BC camps, campgrounds, resorts, inns, RV park represent 70% of all the advisories across the province.

While BC Health does a laudable job of monitoring and publishing them, there are now more water advisories in tourist destinations than there were when we reported in 2013. Some of these advisories are over a decade old. The phenomenom is not unique to BC it is widespread across the country.

NOTE: All advisories can also be found on our BC Water Advisory Map

All advisories are Boil Water Avisories unless otherwise indicated: WQA, Water Quality Advisory; DNC Do Not Consume advisory.
