Whitevale water utility alert is lifted

Whitevale residents can start drinking out of the tap again.

The Regional District of North Okanagan has rescinded a water quality advisory that was put in place for the Whitevale water utility Nov. 20.

“RDNO has been actively monitoring the water quality and all bacterial tests have been clear,” said Zee Marcolin, utilities manager.

“The water from the utility is rated as good.”

A good rating means the water is safe to drink for all customers with the exception of those customers with weakened immune systems.

Customers with weakened immune systems should ask their doctor if they need to take extra precautions.

The advisory was initiated due to emergency work.
