UPDATE JULY 7, 2010
The Regional District of Kitimat Stikine has advised that there is no health advisory and the water is safe to drink. They are keeping the water disinfected.
The Regional District of Kitimat Stikine wishes to advise its Woodlands Water customers that water rationing is in effect due to a major pump failure in the Hemlock Street Well. Residents are requested to minimize water usage and help conserve water until further notice.
The problem is expected to take up to a week to fix. In the interim an emergency system will continue to supply essential needs. If you have no water or have dirty water it is suggested you open a tap and try to expel air or clear your service line.
The Regional District appreciates your cooperation and apologizes for this inconvenience. Notification will be given once the replacement pump is in operation.

I don't doubt RDKS is still dealing with the issues from the Woodlands Utilities days .
I have heard announcements on CFNR but not CBC. I don't listen to TK radio or watch much TV.

Hmmm, no wonder my pets are all sick, and the rest of us are feeling off. It was bad in the old days but now - is it worse?
I thought the town hall meeting in 2002 was supposed to solve all that.
