Customers of two North Westside water systems will not have water for most of Wednesday.

Environmental services staff will be inspecting, cleaning and doing maintenance on the reservoirs that service the Killiney Beach and Westshore Estates water systems.

From 7 a.m. to about 1 p.m.,  250 properties in Westshore Estates will be impacted.

For the 280 homes on the Killiney Beach system, the shut-down will be from about noon until 6 p.m.

“Once the work is complete on a system, we’ll send out notices to water system subscribers of our online e-notification program, advising when water service has been restored and whether any further outage will be required,” said Bruce Smith, with the Regional District if Central Okanagan.

“Customers should check their water prior to use. If they experience any discoloration, they should run the cold water tap until the water runs clear.”
