Water supply changed again

The regional district has once again had to turn off the city's main water supply due to increased turbidity.

The Kalamalka Lake water source was turned off Monday morning.

According to the regional district, the decision to remove the Kalamalka Lake water source is a precautionary decision made based on the annual milfoil rototilling at the north end of Kalamalka Lake. 

When rototilling is taking place, water turbidity can increase and the ultra violet disinfection process can change.

During this time, water will be supplied from the Duteau Creek Water Treatment Plant (DCWTP) until the annual milfoil rototilling is complete.
Customers who are not normally on the DCWTP will notice that the water is much softer and the water has a low alkalinity and pH.

This may be of interest to those customers who have in-home water treatment systems or aquariums.
Staff will continue to monitor water quality, notify customers of any further changes and when the Kalamalka Lake water source is turned back on.
