KELOWNA - A pair of construction incidents have left parts of Southeast Kelowna without water today, triggering a boil water notice.

Two construction related incidents today, June 21, disturbed sediment in the distribution system in Southeast Kelowna, leaving several neighbourhoods without water, according to a City of Kelowna media release.

Crews are currently working to restore water service and ensure water quality is back up to standard, the city said. Until the problem is fixed, Southeast Kelowna customers are encouraged to boil their water before consuming it.

“Interior Health has been contacted and city staff continues to monitor the situation," utility services manager Kevin Van Vliet said in the release. "We will also continue to provide updates for residents as they become available."
