Kal water source back on

Following a month of high turbidity in Kalamalka Lake, Greater Vernon Water has switched it back on

The Regional District of North Okanagan wishes to inform customers of Greater Vernon Water (GVW) that the Kalamalka Lake water source has been turned back on.

The Kalamalka Pump Station was shut down on May 15 due to high turbidity in Kalamalka Lake. The turbidity levels have returned to normal and GVW can now return this water supply back to normal operations.

Customers on the Kalamalka Lake supply may notice a change in water quality such as an increase in hardness. This may be of interest to those customers who have in-home water treatment systems or aquariums.

For further information, please call 250-550-3700 or visit www.rdno.ca.
