UPDATE: Boil advisory notice lifted.

Notice had been in place since Tuesday evening

UPDATE: July 28, 5:20 p.m.

The boil water notice issued for Summerland on Tuesday evening is now over.

Interior Health gave approval on Friday afternoon that the notice may be lifted.


A boil water notice has been issued for Summerland.

The notice was issued on Tuesday evening. From 6:40 to 8:30 p.m., an issue at the water treatment plant prevented chlorine from entering the water distribution system.

While the water had been treated, it had not been disinfected through chlorination.

The issue was rectified, but the notice was issued as the unchlorinated water makes its way through the system.

Municipal staff will perform ongoing monitoring to determine when the notice can be lifted.

Interior Health and the District of Summerland recommend all users bring water to a rolling boil for at least one minute before consumption, or use a safe alternative. This includes water for food preparation, teeth brushing and other consumption.
