The South East Kelowna Irrigation District has announced an emergency water service interruption.
“Due to slide activity and unstable slope conditions a washout has occurred, and it will be necessary to temporary shut off a main line in the South East Kelowna Irrigation District for an emergency repair,” says a news release.
The shut down will affect the entire District, and there will be minimal water service to some areas.
“Those that have water are asked to cease irrigation to conserve the minimal supply, some areas will have water service interrupted for several hours. We ask all residents to cease irrigating during this time.”
As for how long the water will be off, the District says as soon as the repair is completed, water to your home will be restored.
“This could take several hours, it is not known at this time how long service will be interrupted. Once water is restored you may want to flush your internal lines.”
