Merritt, B.C. – The city’s boil-water advisory has been lifted following Interior Health’s determination that drinking water in the community meets sufficient quality guidelines.
Most of the city’s residents have been allowed to return to their homes following a mass evacuation in the wake of last month’s flood of the Coldwater River.

In spite of the progress being made in the community, some residences have been deemed unsuitable for living
