Boil water advisory lifted after three months

The water quality advisory has been lifted for West Kelowna residents using the Lakeview Water System.

It was put in place in August because of higher than normal turbidity in the Rose Valley Reservoir.

Turbidity levels have now declined to acceptable standards.

While the system is being flushed out some users may have discoloured water.

They’re advised to run cold faucets until the water runs clear.

Free water at a bulk station at Asquith and Shannon Lake Roads will be available until November 18th.

Under the advisory, it was recommended water be brought to a boil for one minute before being ingested by children, the elderly and those with weakened immune systems.

About 4000 homes and businesses were affected.
