VAVENBY, B.C. — Shower arrangements are being made for Vavenby residents still under a Do Not Use order following Monday's semi diesel spill in the North Thompson River.

The North Thompson Sportsplex Arena says free showers are available on Saturday and Sunday (Jan. 21 and Jan 22) from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.

The facility, located at 428 Murtle Crescent in Clearwater, will also offer showers Monday to Friday (Jan 23 - Jan 27) from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m.

The Thompson-Nicola Regional District says so far there has been no detection of diesel in the Vavenby Water System following two days of testing.

Water quality testing is expected to continue until early next week.

A 'Do Not Use' order remains in effect for all Vavenby residents.
