Water Quality Advisory for Lakeview System
Working in conjunction with the Interior Health Authority, the City of West Kelowna has issued a Water Quality Advisory for the Lakeview Water System due to elevated turbidity in water drawn from the Rose Valley Reservoir.
A Water Quality Advisory means children, the elderly, people with weakened immunity 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 is making free water available at the bulk water station located at Shannon Lake and Asquith Roads. Water from the station is treated via the Powers Creek Treatment Plant, which uses methods including filtration, UV radiation and chlorination. Users need to bring their own containers and hoses if needed and ensure they are clean and suitable for potable water.
The City of West Kelowna will advise the public of any changes to the Water Quality Advisory. Users are encouraged to subscribe to receive automatic emails from the City of West Kelowna at www.westkelownacity.ca/subscribe.
