Water Quality Information
The District of Lillooet operates 6 water sources on 4 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.
When sufficient supply is provided from Town Creek and Dickie Creek, REC Centre Well # 2 is not in use.
Note: Conway Wells #1 and #2 have been out of use since September 2010.
(Generally, wells are not used all winter.)
Our water system turns the wells on and off automatically based on demand and reservoir levels. As water demand increases in mid to late spring, the 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. In the winter, wells are not used due to low demand. Stream water is used continuously throughout the year except during high turbidity events.
