Please note that the City is on a Water Quality Advisory and not the Boil Water Advisory which is in effect for some Okanagan communities.

A water quality advisory is the lowest-level notification and is used in situations where the general public health threat is modest.  Additional precautions (boiling for one minute) can be taken by individuals with weakened immune systems, people over 65 years of age, children under 2 years, and people with chronic illnesses.
