A boil water notice has been issued for the Sunnyside/Pritchard Service Area in West Kelowna.
It is due to the presence of total coliform bacteria. The City of West Kelowna continues to treat the system’s water with chlorine, however, turbidity in the system also remains high.
Under a boil water notice, water must be brought to a rolling boil for one minute or more, or an alternative safe water source must be used for brushing teeth, drinking, making baby formula and ice, preparing food and beverages, and washing fruits and vegetables.
The bulk filling station at Shannon Lake and Asquith Roads provides a safe, alternative source of drinking water. Customers can use the touch-free filling station for free.
