Boil water expanded

UPDATE: 4 p.m.

The boil water notice resulting from a water main break on Glenmore Road in Lake Country has been expanded to include more than 100 properties within the City of Kelowna boundaries.

The notice affects utility users on the city's northern boundary.

Affected areas may experience intermittent water flow and higher water turbidity as the water source is re-directed from Beaver Lake to supply the distribution system.

However, even once service is restored from the original Okanagan Lake source, the boil water notice will need to remain in place until the system is re-disinfected. Crews are on-site to remedy the situation as quickly as possible


ORIGINAL STORY: 1:25 p.m.

The District of Lake Country has issued a boil water notice for all residents who source their water from Okanagan Lake.

The notice was issued in response to Thursday's water main break.

It's expected to remain in effect until next week.

All affected customers are urged to drink boiled water or find a safe alternative.

Water for drinking, washing fruits and vegetables, making beverages or ice or for brushing teeth should be boiled for one minute.

All public facilities must post boil water notices at all publicly accessed sinks or water fountains.

The municipality says it is taking additional measures to reduce risk.
