Sprinkling ban being lifted for those on the Lower Nicola Water Works system.
A Boil Water Notice remains in effect, but the society's Carla Bacon says as of 6pm this evening customers can resume regularly scheduled outdoor water use.
"We have made lots of progress restoring the water capacity. And although there are still some communication problems between the system we are back on again."
The Boil Water notice for customers was put into effect earlier this month after flooding from Guichon Creek washed out two of three pump houses.
Bacon remains hopeful it can be lifted soon, and not continue into winter like last year.
"Last year we had a broken line, so that was totally different. And, this year we don’t have any major water lies that have been compromised."
Roughly 320 customers are serviced by the Lower Nicola Water Works system.
Tender approved for Voght St turning lane.
The bid of $180,413.25 from C.G.L Contracting Limited to construct a right turn lane for drivers travelling south on Voght St where it intersects with Nicola Ave was accepted by Mayor and Council at Tuesday's regular meeting.
CAO Shawn Boven is hoping it can be completed by the fall.
"I don't have the contractors scheduled quite yet, but I expect it to be done sometime this summer."
Boven is advising residents to expect delays along both Voght St and Nicola Ave during the construction process.
The project was originally slated to be completed back in 2016 during the repaving of Nicola Ave but was delayed over issues pertaining to the cost.
