OKANAGAN FALLS – People living in the lower district of Okanagan Falls are doing without water Friday thanks to a major water main break.

Crews are working to repair the break at 10 Avenue and Maple Street, according to a recorded message at the Okanagan Falls Irrigation District office.

In the meantime, residents can get drinking water from the well on Commercial Drive off Oliver Ranch Road.
