FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE DRAFT
December 05, 2017
In consultation with the Interior Health Authority, the City of West Kelowna has lifted the Water Quality Advisory for the Lakeview Water System as testing has indicated the turbidity level has returned to below 1.0 NTU both at the source and within the distribution system.
Free water will continue to be offered at the Bulk Water Station at Asquith and Shannon Lake Roads until December 31, 2017.
The Water Quality Advisory, affecting approximately 4,000 connections in areas including Lakeview Heights, Boucherie Centre, Shannon Woods, Tallus Ridge and Shannon Lake, was put in place in September due to higher than normal turbidity in the Rose Valley Reservoir (the supply source for Lakeview Water System) and was extended as a result of maintenance activities within the distribution system.
