Falcon Ridge water advisory lifted

A Water Quality Advisory has been lifted for residents served by the Falcon Ridge Water System off Highway 33 east in the Central Okanagan East Electoral Area.

The removal of the Advisory this morning by the Regional District of Central Okanagan was made after consultation with Interior Health.

RDCO Communications Officer Bruce Smith says, “The turbidity in the source water for the Falcon Ridge system has decreased and is once again within the acceptable and safe Canadian guidelines for drinking water quality.  As a result we’ve removed the Water Quality Advisory that was brought in as a precaution on June 8th.  Customers of the system are no longer advised to boil their water before using it for drinking, washing fruits and vegetables or brushing their teeth.”

Smith adds, “We appreciate the support and patience of our customers on the almost 50 properties connected to the Falcon Ridge system while the most recent advisory was in place.  We wish to remind residents on the system that the advisory was a precautionary measure and that no bacteria were detected within the water system.”
