Water Quality Advisory

Water quality advisories are being issued for the Pritchard, Sunnyside, West Kelowna Estates and Lakeview Systems due to above normal turbidity.

The advisory affects approximately 7,000 households or about 18,000 people, living in the northern half of the City of West Kelowna, plus businesses, daycares, schools and care facilities, who receive water from the four systems. 

Children, the elderly, people with weakened immunity and anyone else seeking added protection should use water after it has been brought to a rolling boil for one minute, or use an alternate, safe source for drinking, brushing teeth, preparing food, making beverages and ice, and mixing baby formula. 

Residents are being given free access to the bulk water station at Shannon Lake and Asquith Roads. A tap is located on the Asquith Road side of the station. Users must bring their own containers, and hoses if needed, and ensure they are clean and suitable for potable water.
