Effective Immediately the Ellison Area Boil Water Notice has been DOWNGRADED to a Water Quality Advisory
In consultation with Interior Health Authority, the Glenmore-Ellison Improvement District (GEID) has downgraded the Boil Water Notice issued on March 31, 2019 to a Water Quality Advisory (WQA) for approximately 97 water users within the Ellison service area, located within the Regional District of Central Okanagan still serviced from the Mill Creek.
Any properties under a WQA have water that is considered FAIR due to elevated turbidity (cloudiness in the water). For FAIR ratings, IHA recommends that children (0-12yrs), the elderly (65+yrs) and people with weakened immune systems boil their water for one minute or seek a safe alternative.
Owners of public facilities must post Water Quality Advisories at all sinks or drinking water fountains accessible to the public (alternatively, public fountains and taps may be turned off). As opportunities arise, they must also advise their clientele verbally of the WQA.
Please be advised that ongoing monitoring and disinfection is being maintained throughout the GEID distribution system.
