The Regional District of North Okanagan (RDNO) manages the Whitevale Community Water Utility in Electoral Area “D”.

The Whitevale Community Water System serves approximately 90 customers in Whitevale, a residential community in Electoral Area "D". Water is supplied from a well inside the community. 

New Outdoor Water Restrictions 

The Province of BC has ordered water users in our watershed to reduce water use based on the extreme drought conditions. The Whitevale Water Utility well is connected to Bessette Creek,  which continues to be severly impacted by the hot, dry conditions. Many locations in this watershed are seeing historic low flows that are now threatening fish populations. Agricultural water users are now ordered to reduce all water use, except essential needs like livestock watering.

In compliance with this order, residents cannot water outdoors with a sprinkler or water their lawns. Lawns naturally brown and go dormant with minimal water when it is hot – this is normal and the lawn will green up when the weather cools.

Residents may water gardens and outdoor plants (not lawns)  up to three (3) days per week by hand, using a watering can or hose with a spring-loaded shut-off nozzle. Your watering schedule is based on your street address as shown in the table below.

Water Restrictions Schedule
Hand Watering only between 7:00 pm - 10:00 am
Sunday Monday Tuesday Wednesday Thursday Friday Saturday

We are asking residents to reduce their indoor water use by 20% (if possible) to help protect this watershed. Any way you can reduce water use will help our watershed. For indoor and outdoor water conservation tips, visit www.rdno.ca/waterwise.

The three (3) day per week water restrictions schedule provides options for water use and should not be viewed as a directive to water every allowable day.
