Water quality advisory lifted at Westshore Estates
A water quality advisory has been removed for residents served by the Westshore water system off Westside.
The advisory had been initiated late last week.
“The lab results from test samples of water taken from the upper mountain reservoir distribution area confirmed no evidence that the water supply for almost 150 properties connected to the reservoir was contaminated,” said Bruce Smith, with the Regional District of Central Okanagan.
“We apologize to our customers for the inconvenience caused since the advisory was initiated in response to vandalism our staff found at the reservoir. When it comes to water safety, there’s no messing around and whenever any risk is identified we enact our emergency response procedures.”
Security is being expanded around the reservoir, including fencing.
“We take water quality and protecting the water supply seriously and encourage anyone witnessing suspicious activity around our water facilities to contact the RCMP,” said Smith.
