Greater Vernon residents are encouraged to find out more about a multi-million-dollar upgrade to the water system.

There will be an information session Oct. 28 from 5 to 7 p.m. at the Regional District of North Okanagan office about the master water plan and the $70 million borrowing referendum Nov. 15.

If the referendum is successful, upgrades will include filtration at the Duteau Creek treatment plant, an oversized irrigation main line, separation of Coldstream agricultural water, improved domestic distribution, a pump station for agricultural supply and raising the Aberdeen Lake dam.

The regional district office is located at 9848 Aberdeen Rd. in Coldstream.
