Killiney water advisory lifted

A water quality advisory has been lifted for customers of the Killiney Beach water system.

The Regional District of Central Okanagan lifted the advisory in consultation with Interior Health.

“Water quality is once again within acceptable and safe Canadian drinking water guidelines, as turbidity caused by the historically high levels of the Okanagan Lake has decreased," said RDCO communications officer Bruce Smith. 

Customers no longer need to boil their water before using it for drinking, washing fruits and vegetables or brushing their teeth.

Meanwhile, sandbags remain in place to protect the intake pumphouse from the continued high lake water levels.  Residents are asked not to remove any of these flood-protection defences.

“We wish to remind residents on the system that the advisory was a precautionary measure and that no bacteria were detected within the water system," Smith added.

Stage 2 outdoor watering restrictions are in place until Sept. 15.  Customers with even number addresses may irrigate on Saturday and Tuesday, while those with odd addresses may only water outside on Sunday and Wednesday.
