Kelowna water quality advisory fully lifted

First water quality advisory for City of Kelowna water utility in 20 years is now over

More good news on the water quality front as the Okanagan continues to get back to a sense of normalcy with flood waters receding.

The water quality advisory has been lifted for all City of Kelowna Water Utility customers. In consultation with the Interior Health Authority, drinking water from City Water utility intakes has been monitored, tested, and is consistently showing good results.

According to the city, it was the first time in 20 years a drinking water advisory was issued for the city water utility, one of five water providers operating in the city boundaries.

All businesses and public facilities on the City Water Utility can now remove water quality advisory notifications posted at all tap and sink locations.

The water quality advisory was originally issued on Friday, May 12 for all residents and businesses on the City of Kelowna Water Utility, after elevated turbidity levels were noted at City water intakes.

“Turbidity levels at all city water intakes have dropped into the normal range again. Now that we are seeing consistently high water quality across the board, we can confidently rescind the advisory,” says Ed Hoppe, water quality and customer care supervisor.

The City of Kelowna Water Utility serves approximately 60,000 customers from the Poplar Point, Eldorado and Cedar Creek Pump Stations, in addition to the Swick Road system which provides water to approximately 300 customers.
