Boil water downgraded

Good news if you've been boiling your water in South East Kelowna over the holidays.

The boil water notice that was issued December 20, 2017,  has now been downgraded to a water quality advisory now that the disinfection system has been repaired.

The system has been flushed and all microbial testing has come back negative.

Health risk increases as turbidity levels rise, particularly for at-risk populations such as newborns, the elderly and people with weakened immune systems.

Sensitive customers could choose to use bottled or distilled water, or water that has been filtered through a well-maintained treatment device.

Here's some advice for sensitive customers. As a precaution, all water intended for one of the following uses should be boiled for 1 minute.

  • drinking
  • washing fruits and vegetables
  • making beverages or ice
  • brushing teeth
