WEST KELOWNA - About 3,800 residents of West Kelowna who are served by the Lakeview water system are being advised to boil their drinking water.

This advisory was issued yesterday evening, Sept 16, and is due to turbidity in the water that comes from the Rose Valley Reservoir, according to a news release from the City of West Kelowna.

This means children, the elderly, people with weakened immunity and anyone else seeking added protection should use boiled water, or an alternate, safe source, for drinking, brushing teeth, washing fruits and vegetables, preparing food, making beverages and ice and mixing baby formula.

Free water is available at the bulk water station at Shannon Lake and Asquith Roads, which comes from the Powers Creek treatment plant.

Residents can get automatic email updates on changes to the advisory on the city’s web site.
