Kalamalka Water Source Switched to Duteau Creek Water Source

Posted Thursday, November 10, 2016

The Regional District of North Okanagan wishes to inform customers of Greater Vernon Water (GVW) that the Mission Hill Water Treatment Plant - Kalamalka Lake water source will be shut down on November 16, 2016 to accommodate the extension of the water intake in Kalamalka Lake. This planned project will take approximately two (2) weeks and customers will be informed on completion.

All Greater Vernon Water customers will be switched to the Duteau Water Treatment Plant (DCWTP) for the duration of this work.

Customers who are not normally on the DCWTP will notice that the water is much softer and the water has a low alkalinity and pH. This may be of interest to those customers who have in-home water treatment systems or aquariums.

Staff continually monitor water quality and will notify customers if any further change occurs.

For further information, updates will be posted at www.rdno.ca. For more water quality information click on Greater Vernon Water.
