KELOWNA - A construction crew broke a water line in southeast Kelowna earlier today, leaving hundreds of people without water and triggering a boil water notice.

Emil Anderson Construction crews, while working on Stewart Road today, March 25, caused a major water line to break, leaving approximately 250 homes in the Crawford area without water, according to a City of Kelowna media release.

A boil water notice is in effect for the area.

Crews are currently on the scene trying to bring the Upper Crawford water reservoir back into service by the end of the day, the City says.

Residents who still have water in the area are advised to fill their tubs and water jugs. People looking for water urgently can visit the Canyon View Court cul-de-sac for clean bottled drinking water at no cost.

Updates can be found here on the City of Kelowna website.
