A Greater Vernon water source is tapped out.

The Kalamalka Lake water source was turned off Thursday because of increased turbidity.

“The decision to remove the Kalamalka Lake water source was based on increased turbidity due to spring runoff caused by snow melt in the Coldstream Creek watershed,” said Renee Clark, with Greater Vernon Water.

“Water will be supplied from the Duteau Creek Water treatment plant until turbidity decreases in Kalamalka Lake.”

GVW staff will continue to monitor water quality and notify customers of any further changes.
