In consultation with the Interior Health Authority, the Glenmore-Ellison Improvement District (GEID) has issued a BOIL WATER NOTICE (BWN) for some water users within the Ellison service area only, that are still serviced from the Mill Creek. This Boil Water Notice is due to increased raw water turbidity in Mill Creek. GEID’s customers will be notified when conditions change or water quality has improved, and when the BOIL WATER NOTICE is rescinded.

Annual District System Flushing:

Crews will perform annual water main flushing throughout the District from May 22 to August, between the hours of 7:30 a.m. and 4:00 p.m., Monday through Friday.
System flushing is required to ensure optimum water quality and removes any sediment deposits that may accumulate over time. Watch for GEID Road Signs in your area during flushing periods.

Customers of GEID are advised that during these periods, you may experience lower than normal water pressure and some temporary discoloration when crews are working in your area. To avoid any inconvenience, please check your water clarity prior to use. If you experience discoloration, run your cold water taps until the water runs clear.

For any further information, please call the GEID office at 250-763-6506.


Phase 1 of construction to bring treated Okanagan Lake Water to Ellison properties located within the Regional District of Central Okanagan, and to separate the domestic and agricultural supply is now complete!

The metering requirement had been deferred for the Ellison area until this project is complete. Metered rates for single family residences in Phase 1 of Ellison will be implemented January 1, 2019.

If you don’t see any meter readings detailed on your bill, now is the time to arrange for an installation of a water meter . GEID has arranged for a bulk meter discount through Tribus Services in Kelowna. Due to the required meter specifications, only Tribus Services will be supplying and installing GEID meters.

This work will likely include some plumbing alterations to permit the installation of the meter and remote reading device. Tribus will require payment for the meter, remote reader and any necessary plumbing alterations at the time of installation. Once installed, Tribus will provide GEID with a completed Inspection Form. Appointments can be scheduled by calling Tribus Services at 250-765-3826.
