Okanagan Water Supply Alerts

Sign Up for Agricultural Water Notifications from Your Supplier

Water is a valuable resource for everyone in the Okanagan. Local water supply can be quite different from the regional water supply because each water supplier has their own unique water sources, reservoirs and users.

Information about water supply from your supplier will make it easier to make important irrigation decisions. Do you want to receive email, voice message and/or text alerts1 from your water supplier? Sign up below!

Messages will be sent between mid-April and October and increase in frequency in case of drought. Your water supplier may also choose to use the notification system for turn on/ turn off notifications, water pressure notifications, general allocation information etc.

    1. Your options for receiving alerts will vary depending on your water supplier.


MESSAGES TO EXPECT:

  • Early season updates on the snowpack and summer weather forecasts
  • Water supply updates
  • Changes in water restriction stages and responses
  • Irrigation turn on/turn off dates
