City of Kelowna Water Utility officials have confirmed water in the Southridge and Stonebridge subdivisions is safe to drink. The Boil Water Advisory has been lifted in these areas east of Chute Lake Road, however residents are advised to run a water tap for five minutes upon entering their homes to ensure that any air trapped in the lines is removed. The Boil Water Advisory in Crawford Estates was lifted yesterday, Thursday August 28th.

The Boil Water Advisory remains in place for other evacuees returning to their homes who are served by the City of Kelowna Water Utility. This affects residents in the Okaview area, and residents in the Timberline/Rimrock/Swick Road area who may be returning to their homes this week-end. Testing continues and results will be available in the next few days; at that time residents will be advised if the Boil Water Advisory can be lifted in their areas.

For those customers serviced by the South East Kelowna Irrigation District, a Water Boil Order remains in effect.
