UPDATE: What’s the status of your drinking water in the Central Okanagan?
In consultation with Interior Health, the Regional District of Central Okanagan has downgraded a previously issued Boil Water Notice to a Water Quality Advisory for customers of the Killiney Beach and Westshore Estates water systems.
There is a difference between a Water Quality Advisory and a Boil Water Notice, which you can learn about here.
The City of Kelowna, South East Kelowna Irrigation District, Glenmore Ellison Irrigation District, Black Mountain Irrigation District and Rutland Waterworks District.
Currently, the whole City of Kelowna water system is on a Water Quality Advisory.
Glenmore Ellision Irrigation District (GEID) Currently has the Ellison system on a Boil Water Notice and the rest of their system is on a Water Quality Advisory.
RWD utilizes groundwater wells as its source and provides water to approximately 13,000 persons in central Rutland.
Currently, approximately 2,150 water customers in West Kelowna are under Water Quality Advisory.
The West Kelowna Estates (1,000 connections), Sunnyside (1,000 connections) and Pritchard (150 connections) Water Systems, which pull water from Okanagan Lake, are experiencing increased turbidity due to spring runoff and flooding activity.
The City will continue to monitor these systems and will advise customers when the Water Quality Advisory is lifted.
