Starting Friday, Stage 2 Water Restrictions begin for customers of the six water systems operated by the Regional District of Central Okanagan.

Communications Officer Bruce Smith says, “Every year from June 16th to September 15th, Stage 2 water restrictions are in effect for customers of the Star Place, Falcon Ridge, Killiney Beach, Sunset Ranch, Upper Fintry-Shalal Road-Valley of the Sun and Westshore water systems unless other restrictions are in place.  Stage 2 means outdoor watering is restricted on those six systems to two days each week. RDCO water customers with even number addresses may irrigate outdoors on Saturday and Tuesday while those with odd addresses may only water outside on Sunday and Wednesday.”

Under the Regional District Water Systems Regulations Bylaw No. 1370, customers with an automated irrigation system may only water on their designated day between midnight and 6:00 am, while those with manual outdoor irrigation must restrict their watering to between 6:00 am and 11:00 am and 6:00 pm and midnight on their respective irrigation day.  Smith adds, “If you don’t need to water outdoors on your allotted day or time period, please do not waste water.”

The rest of the year, between September 16th and June 15th – Stage 1 Restrictions are in place allowing customers to water outdoors on alternating days.    Those with even-numbered addresses may irrigate on even numbered calendar days and customers with odd-numbered addresses may water outdoors on odd number days.

“By following the outdoor watering restrictions that are in effect all year” Smith says, “residents help ensure reservoirs are replenished and there’s an adequate water supply.”

The Regional District water systems provide service to almost 950 connections in the following areas: Killiney Beach, Westshore Estates, Falcon Ridge, Sunset Ranch, Upper Fintry-Shalal Road-Valley of the Sun and Star Place.
