Vancouver’s city government is looking to the next step in their efforts to curb the spread of the new and mysterious spider, known as the chocolaty spider.
Vancouver city councillor Peter DiCicco said the water tastes soapy and bitter because of the bacteria from the chiral species.
“I think it’s quite likely, I think it would be very, very difficult to control this,” DiCico said.
The city has been testing for the new chocolately strain and is trying to figure out the best way to handle it, he said.
DiCiccos water is a “safe and reliable” option for people who drink tap water, he added.
This is a good example of how we can use our technology to improve the health of the water supply, he explained.
The chocolate spider is spreading rapidly in Vancouver, and some residents are concerned the water will become contaminated.
DiCocco said a sample of the city’s water will be tested by a lab.
While the city is testing water from the affected neighborhoods, the city isn’t planning to replace the water.
It is also possible the city could start testing water outside the affected areas.
On Monday, the council voted to extend the water freeze deadline for the next two months.
If there is no significant change in the water, DiCoccos office will move forward with plans to install a treatment plant that will treat and store the water and use it for people drinking the tap.
