Water quality advisory lifted for Westshore residents
A water quality advisory has been lifted for residents served by the Westshore water system off Westside Road.
The removal of the advisory for 250 properties was made after consultation with the Interior Health Authority.
“The turbidity in the source water for the Westshore system has decreased and is once again within the acceptable and safe Interior Health guidelines for drinking water quality," said Bruce Smith, with the Regional District of Central Okanagan.
"Customers of the system are no longer advised to boil their water before using it for drinking, washing fruits and vegetables or brushing their teeth.”
A reminder to all customersthat unless otherwise noted between June 16 and Sept. 15 each year, stage two outdoor Irrigation restrictions are in place which allow twice weekly outdoor watering based on odd or even street address numbers.
