Falcon Ridge Water Shut Off

The Regional District of Central Okanagan advises Falcon Ridge water system customers of a planned water shut off, as crews begin construction of the system’s new reservoir.

The work is scheduled for this Wednesday, March 14th from 10:00 AM until 2:00 PM (estimated). All 55 properties connected to the Falcon Ridge water system will be affected.

Falcon Ridge water customers may wish to:

 Store sufficient drinking and household water for use during the shut off period

 Fill the bathtub with water to use for toilet flushing

 Use anti-bacterial hand sanitizer for hand washing.

After water supply has been restored, it is recommended that customers:

 Run a cold water tap for five to ten minutes to ensure that the water runs clear

     Once the water runs clear, it is safe to drink and to use hot water.
