JOE RICH, B.C. — The Regional District of Central Okanagan has issued a precautionary water quality advisory for roughly 55 properties in Joe Rich, east of Kelowna.

“Increased turbidity in the water system source has resulted in water quality that might impact children, the elderly or those with weakened immune systems. Roadside sign notices are in place to advise residents of the precautionary Water Quality Advisory,” said RDCO Communications Officer, Bruce Smith.
The health risk is being called modest, but as a precaution, all tap water being used for drinking, brushing teeth or washing food should be boiled for at least one minute.
