Water usage

Resident raises questions about agricultural irrigation in Greater Vernon

Reading the Water Wise guide, it states that up to 50 per cent of water is lost to evaporation if applied during the hot daytime.

Homeowners are bound by bylaws to obey the water restrictions that are in place.

I have noticed for years that agricultural irrigation tends to operate 24/7.

Is the rate of evaporation different for agricultural use compared to domestic?
