VERNON - The Regional District of North Okanagan wishes to inform customers of Greater Vernon Water (GVW) that the Mission Hill Water Treatment Plant/Kalamalka Lake water source was shut down due to computer upgrades at the treatment plant on Monday, March 7, 2016. All GVW customers have been switched to the Duteau Creek Water Treatment Plant (DCWTP).

Customers will be informed when the work is complete.

Customers who are not normally on the DCWTP will notice that the water is much softer and the water has a low alkalinity and pH. This may be of interest to those customers who have in-home water treatment systems or aquariums.

Staff continually monitor water quality and will notify customers if any further change occurs.

For further information, updates will be posted at For more water quality information click on Greater Vernon Water.
