Boil water notice rescinded for Lake Country, Kelowna

Water quality has returned to satisfactory level following water main break

The District of Lake Country has rescinded the boil water notice for customers using the Okanagan Lake Distribution System.

The City of Kelowna lifted its notice Thursday for the nearly 100 affected residents in the city’s northern boundary.

The water has returned to a “Good” rating, satisfying the regulations of Interior Health. All bacterial testing results and disinfection levels have returned to normal following a water main break last Thursday.

The water main was struck while a construction crew was working on a development in the Glenmore Road and Mountview Road area.

“We appreciate your co-operation during this emergency event,” utility superintendent Mike Mitchel said in a release.
