The City of West Kelowna, B.C., in consultation with Interior Health, is downgrading its “do not consume” water order to a boil water notice, for the Rose Valley-Lakeview water service area until further notice.

The West Kelowna Estates water service area remains on a “do not consume” water order until further notice.

The Sunnyside/Pritchard System also remains on a boil water notice until further notice.


Property owners can view a map at to confirm if they fall in the affected service area.

Under a boil water notice, everyone in the service area must use water brought to a rolling boil for one minute or more, or seek an alternative safe source, for brushing teeth, drinking, making baby formula and ice, preparing food and beverages and washing fruits and vegetables.

The bulk filling station at Shannon Lake and Asquith roads provides a safe, alternative source of drinking water. Customers can use the touch-free filling station for free during the boil water notice. Users are urged to bring clean bottles for filling. The tap is located on the Asquith Road side of the facility.

Watermain flushing will be resuming to further improve water quality within the network.

The city will inform residents, via its e-news service, as soon as it is able to rescind the boil water notice. News, alerts, and updates can be acquired by signing up at
