Boil water order in B.C. WebPosted Tue Jul 4 17:30:36 2000 ET KAMLOOPS, B.C. - Thousands of people in British Columbia's Thompson region near Kamloops have been told to boil their drinking water.

The alert went out after it was decided the water was too cloudy in 34 of the region's 300-plus districts. The provincial Environment Ministry says more chlorine is needed to disinfect the supply.

The affected area covers a 150 kilometre long stretch in the southern interior.
