There have been a number of complaints regarding water colouration in Area C of the UEL recently.
Click here to watch Samantha White, an Area C resident, on an interview on Global News.
The UEL is mandated to sample the water four times a month according to the Drinking Water Protection Act and Drinking Water Protection Regulations. UEL actually samples the water twelve times a month at six sampling stations. Sampling is performed by a certified contractor, CARO, and the samples are then couriered to a GVRD laboratory for further analysis. Test results are shared with the UEL Administration; residents can visit the UEL Office to view the weekly reports.
