East Side Water System

The RDEK will be doing it's annual water system flushing for the East Side area between September 4 - October 11, 2019. Users in the area may notice temporary water discoloration for a short period of time. If there is any discoloration of water, please run your cold water taps until the water is clear. For more information of the flushing program, contact Norm Thies, RDEK Senior Operator nthies@rdek.bc.ca or 1-250-342-0063.

East Side Lake Windermere’s water is drawn from Lake Windermere and pumped from the Baltac Pumping Station to the East Side Lake Windermere Water Treatment Plant (WTP) located on Windermere Loop Road. It passes though the coagulation, flocculation, settling and filtration treatment stages and the filtered water is then disinfected using UV and chlorine before being fed to the reservoir and distribution system. The entire process is monitored via Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA) instrumentation and auto-dialer alarms as well as being verified and documented by operators daily.
