An initial ban advised all residents living around the Mount Polley mine area, near the town of Likely, to use only bottled water until further notice.

The advisory affected hundreds of people living around Quesnel Lake, Polley Lake, Hazeltine Creek and Cariboo Creek.

Authorities are asking people in the region to stop using water from both rivers.

People in Quesnel are also being asked to avoid using water from the Quesnel River.
