Parkland Reservoir remains focus of Gibsons' effort to trace e-coli

Officials in the Town of Gibsons say they’re making progress, but still haven’t traced the source of e-coli contamination that forced a boil water advisory earlier this month.
Director of Engineering Dave Newman says now that the Parkland Reservoir has been disinfected and drained they can start a thorough inspection.
The $1.5 million reservoir is relatively new.  It was completed in 2012, and Newman says they’re looking into whether the company that built it would be liable for costs if it turns out to be the source of the problem.
Newman says they’re also going to be ready soon to take at least one zone off of Regional District water.
Town water, no matter where it’s drawn from, will have to be chlorinated until the source of the contamination is narrowed down.
