FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
July 13, 2017
The City of West Kelowna has lifted the Water Quality Advisories for Pritchard, Sunnyside and West Kelowna Estates Water Systems as testing has indicated the turbidity level has returned to below 1.0 NTU.
The Water Quality Advisories, affecting approximately 2,150 water customers in areas including Pritchard Drive, Sunnyside Road, Rose Valley, and West Kelowna Estates, were put in place in May due to increased turbidity in water drawn from Okanagan Lake following spring runoff and flooding activity. These unfiltered systems are treated with chlorination only.
For more information, residents can contact the City of West Kelowna’s Utilities Department at 778-797-2246.
