Do Not Consume Notice for Killiney Water System
In consultation with Interior Health, the Regional District of Central Okanagan (RDCO) has issued a Do Not Consume Notice for residents served by the Killiney Beach water system. The water system has been damaged by the White Rock Lake wildfire.
This affects more than 280 properties serviced in the Killiney Beach subdivision located off Westside Road.
Until further notice the RDCO and Interior Health recommend that all Killiney Beach water customers find a safe alternative. Boiling water will not make it safe.
This water should not be used for drinking, making beverages, brushing teeth or food preparation. All water users are advised to use an alternate source of water or bottled water for the above purposes.
It is okay to use the water for household cleaning, bathing and flushing toilets. The water in your hot water tank would also be unsafe for consumption. Please consult a qualified plumber before draining your hot water tank.
