Peach­land wa­ter may turn cloudy

The Daily Courier - - CITY -

Peach­land has is­sued a wa­ter-qual­ity ad­vi­sory.

Mu­nic­i­pal staff and lo­cal con­trac­tors are re­mov­ing large vol­umes of ma­te­rial de­posited in the wa­ter in­takes dur­ing the spring floods, and it is an­tic­i­pated the tur­bid­ity will in­crease as a re­sult.

The Trepanier Creek sys­tem has been de­ac­ti­vated in favour of the Okana­gan Lake pumps to min­i­mize the en­try of tur­bid wa­ter into the sys­tem.

“As man­dated by IHA (In­te­rior Health Au­thor­ity), when the Okana­gan Lake pumps are ac­ti­vated, a wa­ter-qual­ity ad­vi­sory must be in­sti­tuted as well,” said Linda Ni­cholas, Peach­land op­er­a­tions clerk.
