Precautionary Boil Water Notice for Westshore Water Customers

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

Approximately 270 properties in the Westshore Estates subdivision, located off Westside Road are affected.

RDCO Engineering Services crews responded to the reported break last evening, made the necessary repairs and will be flushing the complete system today.

Until further notice the Regional District and Interior Health recommend as a precaution, that all 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.

For information visit the Regional District website water system webpage (rdco.com/water) or contact RDCO Environmental Services at engineer@rdco.com or 250-469-6241.  To subscribe online for Regional District water quality advisories or alerts by email visit rdco.com/water.
