COVID-19 Update

In the interest of the health and safety of GEID employees and our customers, we are temporarily changing how we deliver our administrative services. It is important to reduce exposure to our administration staff and crew during this time, so we can continue to work to ensure the delivery of your clean, safe drinking water.

The GEID office is temporarily closed to the public, until further notice.

Services will continue to be available by phone, e-mail and appointment only, during regular business hours. (Monday to Friday 8:00am - 4:00pm). After hour emergency services and contact procedures remain the same.

The Final Phase of construction is now COMPLETE. The domestic and agricultural supply systems in the Ellison area have now been separated. Domestic water for these properties and ALL properties within GEID’s boundaries are now supplied from our Okanagan Lake source, treated with both UV and chlorine disinfection. Mill Creek water is now only used for agricultural supply. Please be advised that the agricultural supply system in the Ellison area is NOT to be used for domestic purposes, as ongoing monitoring and disinfection will not be being maintained to the same standard.

Thank you for your patience during the duration of this project.

If you have any questions or concerns, please contact our office at 250.763.6506.
