Greater Vernon Water in conjunction with Interior Health has issued a water qauality advisory for customers on the Delcliffe Water Utility.
The area affected includes Delcliffe Road and Cameron Road.
The water comes from Okanagan Lake and due to the spring freshet and lake level changes, the turbidity has exceeded what is considered to be a normal level.
The water quality is now rated as fair.
The Water Quality Advisory will be in effect until further
A fair rating means that some customers should be careful when ingesting the water.
That includes young children, the elderly and people with weakened immune systems
For these customers, water intended for the following uses should be boiled for one minute.
Customers will be informed when water quality returns to normal via road signs.
