The Township of Spallumcheen notified residents on July 27, 2023 that upon the advise of Interior Health and in an abundance of caution, the Eagle Rock water system was on a boil water advisory.

The Township continues to work with Interior Health and industry professionals to resolve the water quality issues as quickly as possible. On August 3, 2023, the Eagle Rock system was moved to Stage 2 water restrictions to allow the reservoir to be drained and extensive cleaning to be completed. The recent extreme hot weather was the perfect growing conditions for contaminates. We are hopeful that this will resolve the situation.

We are currently awaiting the first of two required water quality tests. If both tests come back with good results the system will return to normal.

Now that the reservoir cleaning is complete, the Eagle Rock Local Area Service has been taken off of Level two water restrictions and returned to a level one water restriction in response to the hot, dry conditions and our current drought rating in the Okanagan. This change is effective today, Friday, August 11, 2023.
