Boil water notice issued for West Kelowna Estates system

Boil water notice issued

The City of West Kelowna has issued a boil water notice for the West Kelowna Estates System.

The notice is an escalation of the water quality advisory issued on May 9 due to increased turbidity in Okanagan Lake. 

Under a boil water notice, all users must use water brought to a rolling boil for one minute or more, or seek an alternative safe source for brushing teeth, drinking, making baby formula and ice, preparing food and beverages and washing fruits and vegetables.

A safe source of water is available at the bulk filling station at Shannon Lake and Asquith Roads. The water is free throughout the duration of the boil water notice.

The Sunnyside/Pritchard water system is also under a water quality advisory, which means the young, old and those with weakened immune systems should consider boiling their water.
