Water Meter Program

An Equitable Approach to Conserving our Shared Resource.

The District of Peachland adopted its Water Master Plan based on the following vision:

"To provide a safe, reliable and affordable supply of water for the District of Peachland"

The plan recognizes the importance of demand management and water conservation.

In 2007, As part of the Westside Joint Water Committee the District of Peachland began the universal installation of water meters. Water meters are an important tool for measuring demand for treated water. They provide a fair and equitable payment system that is based on the principal of "user pay". The use of water meters will result in reduced water usage, reduced repair costs on existing equipment, and provide an opportunity for individuals to reduce their water bills by controlling consumption.
