The City of West Kelowna in consultation with Interior Health, issued a Water Quality Advisory for the West Kelowna Estates System Saturday.

The advisory is due to increased cloudy water (turbidity) at the Okanagan Lake intake.   

A Water Quality Advisory means some risk is associated with consuming drinking water and children, the elderly, people with weakened immune systems and anyone else seeking added protection should use boiled water, or an alternate, safe source, for drinking, brushing teeth, washing fruits and vegetables, preparing food, making beverages and ice and mixing baby formula. 

The City of West Kelowna will advise the public when the water quality changes.
