Okanagan water suppliers are being warned to learn from a contamination case.
Okanagan Basin Water Board officials have been briefed on the 2010 contamination of the Antwerp Springs well in Coldstream and the Regional District of North Okanagan subsequently being found guilty on a variety of charges and being fined $18,540.
“It’s an issue that could be relevant to other local governments,” said Anna Warwick Sears, OBWB executive director.
“There is a concern about liability and what due diligence you need to do beforehand.”
