In consultation with the Interior Health Authority, the Glenmore-Ellison Improvement District (GEID) has issued a BOIL WATER NOTICE (BWN) for some 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. 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customers will be notified when conditions change or water quality has improved, and when the BOIL WATER NOTICE is rescinded.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 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. The affected area ONLY includes properties listed below and shown in YELLOW on the map:

The Interior Health Authority makes the following recommendation: “that all customers drink boiled water or a safe alternative until further notice. Water intended for drinking, washing fruits and vegetables, making beverages or ice, or brushing teeth should be boiled for one minute. Boiled water should then be refrigerated in a clean, covered container. Customers could also choose to use bottled or distilled water, or water that has been filtered through a well-maintained treatment device.

“Health risks increase as turbidity rises, particularly for at-risk populations such as newborns, the elderly, and people with weakened immune systems. Contaminants such as viruses, bacteria, and parasites can attach themselves to the suspended particles in turbid water. These particles can then interfere with disinfection, limiting chlorine’s ability to remove or inactivate the contaminants.

“Owners of all public facilities must post Boil Water Notices 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 Boil Water Notice.”

The Glenmore-Ellison Improvement District apologizes for any inconvenience this might cause our customers and appreciates your cooperation and patience during this time.

If you have any further questions, please contact the GEID office at 250-763-6506.

Sincerely,

GLENMORE-ELLISON

IMPROVEMENT DISTRICT
