UPGRADING WATER QUALITY ADVISORY TO BOIL WATER NOTICE EFFECTIVE IMMEDIATELY

THIS BOIL WATER NOTICE ONLY EFFECTS ‘SOME’ RESIDENTS IN THE ELLISON AREA

In consultation with the Interior Health Authority, the Glenmore-Ellison Improvement District (GEID) has issued a BOIL WATER NOTICE (BWN) for water users within the Ellison service area, located within the Regional District of Central Okanagan still serviced from the Mill Creek. This Boil Water Notice is due to increased raw water turbidity in Mill Creek due to sustained rainfall events. The increased turbidity is expected to continue for several days. GEID’s customers will be notified when conditions change or water quality has improved, and when the BOIL WATER NOTICE is rescinded.

PROPERTIES NOT AFFECTED: This BWN does NOT affect residents located at Country Rhodes Strata located or Country View Estates Strata or any properties now serviced from the Okanagan Lake Source shown in blue. PLEASE NOTE: These unaffected properties are no longer on a Water Quality Advisory.

RE: RESIDENTIAL METERING FOR ELLLISON RESIDENTS

Phase 1 of construction to bring treated Okanagan Lake Water to Ellison properties located within the Regional District of Central Okanagan, and to separate the domestic and agricultural supply is now complete!

The metering requirement had been deferred for the Ellison area until this project is complete. Metered rates for single family residences in Phase 1 of Ellison will be implemented January 1, 2019.

If you don’t see any meter readings detailed on your bill, now is the time to arrange for an installation of a water meter . GEID has arranged for a bulk meter discount through Tribus Services in Kelowna. Due to the required meter specifications, only Tribus Services will be supplying and installing GEID meters.

This work will likely include some plumbing alterations to permit the installation of the meter and remote reading device. Tribus will require payment for the meter, remote reader and any necessary plumbing alterations at the time of installation. Once installed, Tribus will provide GEID with a completed Inspection Form. Appointments can be scheduled by calling Tribus Services at 250-765-3826.
