That means backyard pools across the Central Okanagan will be drained soon, if they haven’t been drained already, and the City of Kelowna wants to ensure that people are doing it properly.
“Follow proper pool drainage procedures this and every season to help protect Okanagan Lake, our drinking water source,” a City statement reads.
The City offered up the following tips to any resident who is draining their pool, hot tub or backyard water features at any time of year:
Any resident unsure of how to properly drain a pool, hot tub or water feature is urged to contact the City’s water quality department at 250-469-8887 before proceeding.
Improperly discharging contaminated water can lead to a fine of up to $2,000.
