Outback Resort Water Quality Advisory

 

Customers served by the Outback Water System have water supplied from Okanagan Lake. Due to lake level and water quality changes, the turbidity has exceeded 1.0 NTU at the Outback Water Intake. Due to this increase in turbidity (cloudiness) the water quality is now rated as FAIR. This Water Quality Advisory will be in effect until further notice.

Young children, the elderly and people with weakened immune systems should be careful when ingesting the water.  For these customers, water intended for the following uses should be boiled for one minute:

 preparing any food

 drinking

 washing fruits and vegetables

 making beverages or ice

 brushing teeth

Customers will be informed when water quality returns to normal via road signs. For more information, please visit www.rdno.ca/water.
