Water Advisory issued for Falcon Ridge

The Regional District of Central Okanagan has issued a precautionary Water Quality Advisory for residents served by the Falcon Ridge Water System in the Central Okanagan East Electoral Area the small Star Place Water System in the Central Okanagan West Electoral Area.

The advisory affects customers of the community water systems serving over 58 properties off Highway 33 and 97C. Increased turbidity in the water system source has resulted in water quality that might impact children, the elderly or those with weakened immune systems.

Communications Officer Bruce Smith says, “Interior Health has been contacted and while the health risk is modest and no bacteria have been found in any of the water from the system tested,

Regional District staff recommends as a precaution that Falcon Ridge water customers follow Interior Health guidelines. All water intended for drinking, washing produce, making beverages or brushing teeth should be boiled for at least one minute or customers should use a safe alternative to water from the tap such as bottled or distilled water or water filtered through a well-maintained in-home treatment device.”

This precautionary water quality advisory affecting the Falcon Ridge and Star Place Water Systems will continue until further notice.
