KELOWNA - For the second time in three weeks, about 3,800 West Kelowna residents are being asked to boil their drinking water.

A Water Quality Advisory was issued today, Oct. 7, for residents of the Lakeview Water System due to increased water turbidity.

The last advisory was issued Sept. 17.

That means children, the elderly and people with weakened immune systems should boil tap water used for drinking, brushing teeth, washing or preparing food and making drinks, ice cubes and baby formula.
