Water quality advisory issued for Delcliffe neighbourhood

Increased turbidity on Okanagan Lake is presenting a challenge

Residents in an Okanagan Landing neighbourhood have been issued an alert about their water.

Greater Vernon Water has issued a water quality advisory for customers supplied by the Delcliffe Water Utility.

“Customers supplied by the Delcliffe utility are supplied from Okanagan Lake,” said Renee Clark, water quality manager.

“Due to this increase in turbidity, the water quality is now rated as fair. This water quality advisory will be in affect until further notice.

The area impacted includes Delcliffe Road and Cameron Road.

Children, the elderly and people with weakened immune systems should be careful when ingesting the water:

For these customers, water should be boiled for one minute for drinking, washing fruits and vegetables, making beverages or ice and brushing teeth.

Customers will be informed when water quality returns to normal via road signs and a hand-delivered notice.
