Kelowna water quality advisory partially lifted
Canada
The City of Kelowna Water Utility, in consultation with the Interior Health Authority, has lifted the water quality advisory for the area north of and including K.L.O. Road.

The water quality advisory for Kelowna Water Utility users south of K.L.O. Road remains in place.

The advisory was issued on May 12 after elevated turbidity levels were noted at city water intakes.

“We’ve been monitoring turbidity levels and the Poplar Point intake now has consistently low levels allowing us to lift the advisory for the north part of our utility area,” Ed Hoppe, Water Quality & Customer Care Supervisor, said in a news release. “We’ve also seen an improvement in the water intakes that feed the south part of Kelowna but lake levels are still high and turbidity has been fluctuating. We’ll lift that part of the advisory as soon as we are confident turbidity levels have returned to normal.”

A Water Quality Advisory map has been created to further define where the advisory has been lifted, and where it remains in place.
