Chlorination

It is our mandate from Vancouver Coastal Health to provide the safest and best quality of drinking water at all times.

Notice of Chlorination

December 8, 2021: Chlorination of the Parkland reservoir, which supplies Water Zone 2, will be undertaken from Tuesday, December 14th to Thursday, December 16th. As a result, residents and businesses located in Zone 2 may notice a slight change in the taste or odour of their water for a few days. We thank you for your understanding as we conduct this semi-annual health and safety work.

General Information

The Town of Gibsons is divided into three water zones. While all three zones are primarily serviced by the Gibsons Aquifer, Zone 3 is linked to the SCRD water network, which occasionally supplements the Zone 3 water supply. As a result, Zone 3 water is chlorinated at all times, while the water delivered to Zones 1 and 2 is not normally chlorinated.

Occasionally, the Town must chlorinate the water being delivered to Zones 1 and 2 to protect the health of the community. This usually occurs when work is being done on water mains and there is a risk of impurities entering the water system.

Whenever possible, the Town posts a Notice of Chlorination in local newspapers, on social media and on this webpage in advance of the water chlorination.
