KELOWNA - Effective Thurs., Nov. 13, 2014, the Ellison boil water notice has been downgraded to a water quality advisory

In consultation with the Interior Health Authority, the Glenmore-Ellison Improvement District has downgraded the Ellison boil water notice issued on April 29, 2014 to a water quality advisory. This advisory applies to select Ellison properties serviced by the district which are located on or east of Old Vernon Road, on or north of Anderson Road, all properties on Postill Lake Road and all properties south of Postill Drive.

An ongoing advisory has been in place for those properties serviced by district located at 4451 to 4563 Postill Drive, 5981 Old Vernon Road, Country Rhodes Strata at 6100 Old Vernon Road, Country View Estates at 6400 Spencer Road, Dry Valley Road and Gale Road.

This is also a reminder that an advisory remains in effect for all properties serviced by district in Glenmore, but no advisory is in effect for properties serviced by the McKinley Landing water system.

Any properties under an advisory have water that is considered fair due to elevated turbidity (cloudiness in the water). For fair ratings, health authority recommends that children (0-12 years old), the elderly (65+ years old) and people with weakened immune systems boil their water for one minute or seek a safe alternative. See for more detailed information.

Owners of public facilities must post water quality advisories at all sinks or drinking water fountains accessible to the public (alternatively, public fountains and taps may be turned off). As opportunities arise, they must also advise their clientele verbally of the advisory.

Please be advised that ongoing monitoring and disinfection is being maintained throughout the district distribution system.

If you require further information see or contact the GEID office at 250-763-6506.
