A water quality advisory has been issued for parts of eastern Kelowna.
On Thursday, Black Mountain Irrigation District (BMID) issued a precautionary advisory for its entire service area, saying maintenance work will take place later this month.
The work will begin Tuesday, Sept. 27, and will last two days. However, Black Mountain says the water quality advisory will be in effect until Oct. 5.
BMID says during the work period, water will have to bypass ultra-violet disinfection, which provides treatment for protozoa such as cryptosporidium and giardia.
“While water may not be treated with UV, the water will still be treated with the clarification process and disinfected with chlorine,” added BMID.
