Water Advisory issued for Peachland

The recent spell of warm weather has resulted in a Water Quality Advisory being issued for Peachland.

According to the District, the warm weather has caused an unusually early melt resulting in a dramatic rise in turbidity in local drinking water.

While the associated health risks are minimal, Interior Health recommends that children, the elderly, people with weakened immune systems, and anyone seeking additional protection drink boiled water or a safe alternative until further notice.  

Water intended for drinking, washing fruits or vegetables, making juice or ice, or brushing teeth should be boiled for at least one minute.

The Water Quality Advisory will stay in effect until further notice.
