Water Quality Advisory – Killiney Beach / Westshore Estates

Here is a Water Quality Advisory for Killiney and Westshore Water Systems that are both operated by RDCO.  If you live elsewhere in the Electoral Area West and are not sure of the Water Quality in your system check with the system operator to assure that your water quality is to a standard that meets your personal health need requirements.

I saw a sign at La Casa warning of a Water Quality concern so check in with the Strata Office for further information on that system.  Estamont and Fintry Delta water users should check signage at the entrance to their subdivisions and if no information is posted then contact your private water purveyor for water quality information.  Contact information should be available on your water statement/invoice.

Water Quality Advisory for Killiney and Westshore Water Systems
In consultation with Interior Health, the Regional District of Central Okanagan has issued a Water Quality Advisory for customers of the Killiney Beach and Westshore Estates water systems.
The advisory affects more than 280 properties serviced in the Killiney Beach subdivision and 265 properties in the Westshore Estates subdivision, both located off Westside Road.
Increased turbidity in each of the water system sources from high runoff has resulted in water quality that might impact children, the elderly or those with weakened immune systems. Roadside sign notices will be in place in each area advising of the water advisories.
Regional District staff recommends that as a precaution that Killiney Beach and Westshore Estates water customers follow Interior Health guidelines, especially for those with weakened immune systems, the elderly, children and those wishing additional precautions. All water intended for drinking, washing fruit and vegetables, making beverages, ice or brushing teeth should be boiled for at least one minute or customers should use a safe alternative to water from the tap such as bottled or distilled water.
This precautionary water quality advisory will continue until turbidity returns to normal operating levels within acceptable Guidelines for Canadian Drinking Water Quality.
For information visit the Regional District website water system webpage (regionaldistrict.com/water) or contact RDCO Environmental Services at engineer@cord.bc.ca or 250-469-6241.
