Water Advisory

All of Peachland is on a Water Quality Advisory.

According to Shawn Grundy from the District of Peachland Water Department, the recent weather caused a rise in turbidity on Saturday April 19, to a level above 1.0NTU.  As such, a Water Quality Advisory has been issued and will remain in force until further notice.

Grundy says, "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."

For those at-risk populations, water intended for drinking washing fruits or vegetables, making juice or ice, or brushing teeth should be boiled for one minute.

"We apologize for any inconvenience and appreciate your patience during this time," says Grundy.
