HUDSON'S HOPE, BC -- A boil water notice has been issued for the District of Hudson’s Hope.

District officials say the Water Treatment Plant stopped working due to a mechanical failure. Water is still available in homes and businesses, but it is untreated.

Medical Health Officers recommend boiling your water at a rolling boil for at least one minute. This will inactivate all harmful bacteria, parasites, and viruses, and make the water safe to drink.
