Farmers throughout B.C. will soon have a tool to report their water use.
The Okanagan Basin Water Board has secured a $50,000 grant to beef up computer software its developed for municipal water utilities to register the amount of water they are drawing with the BC Water Use Reporting Centre.
Updating the software for the agricultural sector, so farmers with large licences can use the tool as well, means anyone with a large water licence will be able to meet the new water regulations expected next year as a result of the 2014 Water Sustainability Act.
