Water brown? No concern

If you're on the Lakeview Water System in West Kelowna, you may notice a brown tinge in your water.

If so, no need for concern.

The city is performing a water main flush of the system in anticipation of the removal of a water quality advisory currently in place.

The process involves sending water at a high velocity through the pipes to remove accumulated sediment. It may cause discoloration during the process.

If you happen to notice a discoloration after the flushing takes place, you should run the cold water tap until the water runs clear.

The advisory has been in place for the Lakeview Water System since the beginning of September due to a higher than normal turbidity level in the Rose Valley Reservoir.
