Wednesday’s windstorm has prompted a water quality advisory for residents and businesses on the Pritchard-Sunnyside water system.
The wind stirred up Okanagan Lake enough to cause turbidity issues near the system’s water intake.
A map is available at westkelownacity.ca/waterquality for anyone who is unsure which water system they are on.
Children, the elderly and those with compromised immune systems should use water that has been brought to a rolling boil for at least one minute, or a safe alternative.
The bulk filling station at Shannon Lake and Asquith Roads is open to provide a safe, free source of water.
