Welcome to the District of Peachland Water Department. If you want additional information not posted on this site, please feel free to contact the Water Department Office at (250) 767-2108 Regular office hours are Monday to Friday, 7:30 am - 3:30pm.Clean water is the most precious natural asset in the Okanagan – essential to the beauty of our landscapes, our healthy economy and the well-being of our citizens. The Okanagan Basin Water Board (OBWB) was instituted in 1970 through a collaboration of the three Okanagan regional districts to provide leadership on water issues that span the entire valley – recognizing the need to work together to protect our common resources.
Did you know you CAN view your water usage 24/7?
The District would like to remind residents that they are able to track their water usage online. This is a great tool to ensure water usage is consistent with previous years and there are no surprises when the quarterly utility bills are mailed out. The District does water meter reads at the end of every month and within a few days this information is available for online viewing.
For access to online meter readings, please follow the instructions below:
You can view your utility bills online by going to www.peachland.ca and selecting “Virtual City Hall” from the selection on the left side of the screen. Select Utility Billing, and then Billing Summary. Enter your Account Number and your Access Code. Both numbers are located in the centre of your utility bill. From this screen you can view all of your transactions and account information, including your water usage.
If there are any concerns, or if you do not have access to the internet, you can always call Municipal Hall (250.767.2647) and staff can look up the information for you.
