WATER QUALITY INFORMATION
 
WATER TESTING
The District of Lillooet operates 8 water sources on 3 systems.  Our water is tested throughout the year. Some of these tests are performed by Interior Health, and some by the District of Lillooet.

Test results are posted on our website whether the source is in use or not. When a source is not in use, test results may indicate a solids/metals level over the MAC, due to the inactivity of the well. All efforts are made to ensure that when water sources are in use they are within the Maximum Allowable Concentrations (MAC) set out by Interior Health.
 
WATER SUPPLY
Since commissioning of phase two of the water treatment facility, the facility is the primary source for the entire community (Central & North Lillooet). The creek sources (Town Creek and Dickie Creek) are for emergency supply only.
 
REC Centre Well #2 is used for back-up for the water treatment facility if resevoir levels are below 80%.  The Rec Centre Well #2 provided just over 6% ofthe water consumed in 2016.
 
Note: Conway Wells #1 and #2 have been out of use since September 2010. 

Our water system operator turns the wells on and off based on demand, reservoir levels and water source quality. As water demand increases in mid to late spring, the REC well will be called to duty intermittently and as the summer approaches and the demand for water increases further the wells run more consistently to keep the reservoirs full.
