After consulting with Interior Health, the Regional District of Central Okanagan has rescinded a Water Quality Advisory for customers of the Westshore Estates water system.
The higher turbidity caused by the historically high levels of the Okanagan Lake source water has decreased and is once again within the acceptable and safe Canadian guidelines for drinking water quality. As a result the precautionary Water Quality Advisory that has been in place since May 15th has been removed.
Communication Officer Bruce Smith adds, “We appreciate the patience and understanding of our customers on the 265 properties connected to the water system.”
Customers are reminded that in order to allow adequate water supplies in our reservoirs until September 15th Stage 2 outdoor watering restrictions are in place.
Customers with even number addresses may irrigate outdoors on Saturday and Tuesday while those with odd addresses may only water outside on Sunday and Wednesday. For hours that outdoor watering is allowed visit regionaldistrict.com/water.
