Boil water notice for Sunnyside/Pritchard customers in West Kelowna

Bulk filling station at Shannon Lake and Asquith Roads provides alternative source of drinking water

The water quality advisory for the Sunnyside/Pritchard water service area has been upgraded to a boil water notice.

A statement from the City of West Kelowna says it’s due to an increase in turbidity levels affecting the deterioration of water quality. Under a boil water notice, residents must use water brought to a rolling boil for one minute or more or seek an alternative safe source, 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. Bring clean bottles for filling.

Residents can view a map on the City of West Kelowna website to check if their property is in the affected area.
