CENTRAL OKANAGAN - A precautionary water quality advisory has been removed for customers served by the Killiney Beach and Westshore water systems in the Central Okanagan West Electoral Area.

The lifting of the precautionary advisory this morning by the Regional District of Central Okangan was made in consultation with Interior Health.

The advisory affected more than 530 properties connected to the two separate community water systems servicing subdivisions off Westside Road. The advisory was recommended on Monday, August 22nd as a result of the power outages and reservoir drawdown affecting the two water utilities.

“With the restoration of regular electrical service, the water quality advisory has been removed," communications officer Bruce Smith says. "We thank all our customers for their patience and understanding during this period. The health risk for certain people including the elderly, children and those with weakened immune systems was modest which is why the precautionary advisory was brought in.”

For information visit the Regional District website water system webpage (regionaldistrict.com/water) or contact RDCO Environmental Services at engineer@cord.bc.ca or 250-469-6241.
