KAMLOOPS — For the second time in two weeks, a boil water notice has been issued for Sun Rivers.

In this case, rather than a select neighbourhood, this advisory is in effect for the entire community of Sun Rivers.

Corix Utilities says the water distribution system has lost pressure, leaving the potential for contamination.

Residents are advised to bring any water they are using to a rolling boil for one minute before using it.

Corix says the public will be notified when the notice is lifted.
