West Kelowna Watering Regulations




It’s sunny and the flowers are blooming and West Kelowna residents are starting up their sprinklers for the season. Residents are reminded that Stage 1 Sprinkling Regulations are always in effect in West Kelowna, unless a need for further conservation is required.
Here are the Stage 1 Sprinkling Regulations for West Kelowna:
  • Sprinkling is only permitted at residential, commercial, and other non-agricultural properties as follows:
    • Even numbered addresses: Watering is only permitted on Even Calendar Days.
    • Odd numbered addresses: Watering is only permitted on Odd Calendar Days.
  • Automatically Controlled Underground Sprinkling Systems (Residential & Commercial):
    • Properties equipped with an automated time clock sprinkler system may only sprinkle between the hours of 12:00 Midnight to 6:00 a.m. on the days permitted by the sprinkling regulations as described above.
  • Manually Controlled Sprinklers (Residential & Commercial):
    • Properties equipped with only manually controlled sprinkling systems, including those attached to outside taps, may only operate from 6:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m. and from 6:00 p.m. to 12:00 Midnight on the days permitted by the sprinkling regulations as described above.
  • Sprinkling is not permitted between the hours of 11:00 a.m. and 6:00 p.m. during any day at any time of the year.
  • Only one ½” diameter outlet (outside tap) may be used at one time for sprinkling, and further, it is not permissible to use an open pipe or hose for irrigating purposes.
  • Under certain situations, such as drought conditions, protection of works and the efficiency of the system as a whole, the city may introduce additional restrictions.


Over the past few years water conservation has had a positive effect in the reduction of peak flows and overall water consumption and the City of West Kelowna thanks its customers for their cooperation.
