Water District Conversion

As of January 1, 2021, five more water districts have been transferred to the Township of Spallumcheen. Currently, the Township is working with our consultant and Interior Health to develop water quality monitoring plans for the water service areas (WSA). In addition, the Township is also ensuring necessary maintenance items are in place and developing Emergency Response Plans for all 9 WSAs. Township staff are also working to develop a work maintenance plan which would include unilateral flushing and development of full system mapping.   

Currently in the Larkin Service Area, residents are on Stage 2 Water restrictions. This means that residents serviced by the Larkin Water Service Area may only only water by hand. No use of sprinkler or irrigation systems to water lawns, gardens, trees or shrubs nor is washing of driveways, sidewalks, parking lots or exterior building surfaces allowed. 

Any residents that are serviced by Greater Vernon Water in the south of Spallumcheen are also on Stage 2 Water Restrictions.  To view details about Stage 2 restrictions in this area, please visit the Regional District of North Okanagan webpage.
