Boil Water Notice for Sage Mesa area of Penticton

A boil water notice for the Sage Mesa area.

The RDOS has upgrading the current Water Quality Advisory to a Boil Water Notice for the Upper Zone.

RDOS also reminds Lower Zone residents to boil their water as per the seasonal Boil Water Notice.

This is in response to turbidity levels in Okanagan Lake increasing.

This Advisory will remain in effect until further notice.

Residents are advised to use a safe alternate source of water or to boil water for all drinking, oral hygiene and food preparation/cooking purposes. Water should be brought to a full boil and allowed to boil for at least 1 minute to reduce the risk of infection from pathogens that may be found in the water.
