To Our Valued Clients,

Due to the recent events that are taking place around the world and in our community regarding the outbreak of COVID-19, AquaDiversities Waterworks Inc. wanted to take this opportunity to reach out on behalf of the NSWU since we own and operate your Provincially regulated private water utility.

It is always been a priority to maintain the safety and wellness of our staff, clients and families that we work with. We will continue to monitor the situation and follow recommendations from the Public Health Agency of Canada, Center for Disease Control and, the World Health Organization.

As our companies provide essential services, we have and are taking this Pandemic very seriously. We proactively made the decision the second week of March to encourage our staff to work from home and self-Isolate to help reduce the risks of exposure.

Our office, service and on-site staff are cross trained and they are implementing social distancing and other safe work practices so that we can continue to support our clients.

We have ensured that all our staff is equipped with the resources to continue working on current and upcoming projects and contracts with the least amount of disruption possible. Rest assured that we have consumables in stock to ensure water quality for the facilities we operate and maintain.

At this time, we are asking that clients remain away from the office and direct any questions, concerns and emergencies to the following contact:

Phone: (250) 509-2222

Water Quality Advisory

The North Shore Water Utility has issued a Water Quality Advisory (WQA).

This is NOT a Boil Water Advisory; you do not need to boil your water UNLESSyou have a compromised immune system. 

This is a precautionary water quality advisory due to increased turbidy (cloudiness) as a result of warming temperatures and rapid snow melt. 

While health risks are considered low, the North Shore Water Utility and Interior Health recommend that young children, the elderly, people with weakened immune systems, and anyone seeking additional protection drink boiled water or a safe alternative until further notice. For these at-risk populations, water intended for drinking, washing fruits or vegetables, making beverages or ice, or brushing teeth should be boiled for one minute. 

Health risks increase as turbidity rises, particularly for at risk populations. Contaminants such as viruses, bacteria, and parasites can attach themselves to the suspended particles in turbid water. These particles can interfere with disinfection, limiting chlorine's ability to remove or inactivate the contaminants. 

Owners of all public facilities must post a water quality advisory at all sinks or drinking water fountains accessible to the public (alternatively, public fountains and taps may be turned off). As opportunities arise, they must also advise their clientele verbally of the water quality advisory. 

The advisory will be rescinded when the water quality has improved.
