Wesla views West Kelowna's biggest ever infrastructure project

$75 million project secures clean water for years to come

It's the largest infrastructure project ever undertaken by the City of West Kelowna.

With a budget up to $75 million, the new state-of-the-art Rose Valley Water Treatment Plant was recently shown off to the public.

Prior to the end of 2023, more than 19,650 residents turned on their taps to clean, safe, and reliable water from the facility.

The federal government contributed $24.7 million and British Columbia contributed $16.3 million towards the project.

It can treat up to 70 million litres of water daily and was designed so that the City can increase capacity to 115 million litres per day to meet future demand.

Check out the video with Wesla to learn how it all works.
