Greater Vernon Water (GVW) customers have been switched back to their original source.
The Kalamalka Lake water source was turned back on Tuesday, May 31 after it was turned off May 11 due to turbidity.
“The repairs have now been completed, and the turbidity (cloudiness) has returned back to normal levels,” the Regional District of North Okanagan said May 31.
GVW is returning to normal operations by supplying water from its two sources; the Duteau Creek Water Treatment Plant supplied by Duteau Creek and the Mission Hill Water Treatment Plant supplied by Kalamalka Lake.
Customers may notice some cloudiness or sediment in their water as a result of the change in direction of flow.
“Please run a cold water tap closest to where the water enters your house before your hot water tank, any in-home filtration, or taps with aerators,” RDNO said.
