The Regional District of Central Okanagan issued a precautionary boil water notice today.

Residents served by the Falcon Ridge Water System in the Central Okanagan East Electoral area may be affected, a media release says.

Interior Health (IH) recommends that Falcon Ridge water customers follow their guidelines especially for those with weakened immune systems, the elderly, children and those wishing additional precautions.

All water intended for drinking, washing fruit and vegetables, making beverages, ice or brushing teeth should be boiled for at least one minute or customers should use a safe alternative to water from the tap such as bottled or distilled water.

There are approximately 55 properties connected to the water system off Highway 33.

Roadside signs are in place to advise residents of the boil water notice.

This precautionary measure will continue until further notice.
