‘Do Not Consume’ notice lifted for Killiney Beach after more than 2 months

Residents served by the Killiney Beach water system will finally be able to consume their tap water again.

The water system has been under a ‘Do Not Consume’ notice since Sept. 2 after it was compromised by the structural fire-suppression efforts for the White Rock Lake wildfire.

The move to remove the notice was made in consultation with Interior Health now that water quality is within acceptable Canadian Drinking Water Guidelines.

In addition, the entire water system has been thoroughly flushed and chlorine-dosed, while a detailed assessment of the system infrastructure and reservoirs has been completed as well.

“We thank all Killiney water customers for their patience and understanding throughout this ordeal as we have been working towards restoring safe, drinkable potable tap water,” said Travis Kendel, RDCO emergency services manager.

“This has been a major inconvenience for all and we want residents to know that we and IH keep their health and safety at the paramount as we worked through the process to remove all water quality advisories.”

Around 295 properties off Westside Road are served by the Killiney Beach water system.
