Watermain flushing continues for the Rose Valley-Lakeview system in West Kelowna.

The work is being done ahead of connecting residents to the Rose Valley Water Treatment Plant which will be up and running later this year.

City crews will be flushing in Lakeview starting Friday (June 30) and continuing until further notice.

Residents and businesses should review the maps provided and take the following steps before, during and after flushing occurs within their neighbourhood:

  • Visit the City of West Kelowna webiste to help confirm if watermain flushing is underway near you;
  • View the water quality map to stay informed of the water quality status in your area.

Watermain flushing will generally occur from 7:30 a.m. to 4 p.m., Monday through Friday, however, the schedule is subject to change.

Signs will be posted when flushing is happening in each area. During flushing, there may be reduced water pressure or discolouration. Any disruption should be brief and only occur while mains in the area are being flushed.

While watermain flushing is occurring a precautionary water quality advisory will be in effect. An alternative safe source is the bulk filling station at Shannon Lake and Asquith Roads.
