Water restrictions ramped up for North Westside Road residents

Impacted are the Killiney Beach, Upper Fintry-Shalal Road-Valley of the Sun and Westshore water systems.

North Westside Road residents are being told to cut down on water consumption.

From June 16 to Sept. 15, stage two water restrictions are in effect for customers of the Killiney Beach, Upper Fintry-Shalal Road-Valley of the Sun and Westshore water systems.

“That restricts outdoor watering to two days each week,” said Bruce Smith, with the Regional District of Central Okanagan.

“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.”

Customers with an automated irrigation system may only water if needed on their allotted day between midnight and 6 a.m., while people with manual outdoor irrigation must restrict their watering if needed, to between 6 and 11 a.m. and 6 p.m. and midnight on their respective irrigation day.

“If you don’t need to water outdoors on your allotted day or time period, please do not waste water,” said Smith.

Between Sept. 16 and June 15, stage one restrictions are in place allowing customers to water outdoors on alternating days.
