The water main that broke in Lake Country on Thursday is also affecting some Kelowna residents.
The City of Kelowna announced a boil water notice has been issued for more than 100 city utility customers along its northern boundary. The alert is in conjunction with a boil water notice that Lake Country issued earlier in the day.
The city utility addresses affected by the boil water notice include Balser Court, Beaver Lake Road, Bottom Wood Lake Road, Bubna Road, Cario Road, Grigg Road, Haldane Road, Highway 97 N, Jim Bailey Crescent, McCarthy Road, Potterton Road and Tilley Road.
The city said affected areas may experience intermittent water flow and higher water turbidity, as the water source is redirected from Beaver Lake to supply the distribution system.
