Precautionary Boil Water Notice for Westshore Water Customers

A water main break has resulted in a precautionary Boil Water Notice for some residents served by the Westshore Estates water system.

The following properties in the subdivision located off Westside Road are affected and may experience lower water pressure or no water until repairs are made and the system is back to normal operation.

  • Westside of Mountain Drive from 500 to 578
  • Hillcrest Way

RDCO Engineering Services crews responded to the break today.  Once repairs are complete, they will flush the system.

Until further notice the Regional District and Interior Health recommend as a precaution, that those affected Westshore water customers drink boiled water or a safe alternative. All water intended for drinking, preparing food and washing fruits and vegetables to be eaten raw, making beverages, ice or mixing baby formula, or brushing teeth should be boiled for at least one minute.

The notice will be amended once tests confirm water is within acceptable Guidelines for Canadian Drinking Water quality.
