2020 Irrigation Season Start-Up
NOTICE TO OLIVER RURAL WATER CUSTOMERS
- The beginning of the 2020 irrigation season has been set for Tuesday, April 14, 2020.
- Town crew will begin turning on all irrigation services on Monday, April 6, 2020. **This will allow users to take water for spray fill purposes; however, it must only be used for this purpose. Those found using water for any other purpose prior to the Irrigation Season will have their water turned off. Water service will then not be available until the beginning of the Irrigation Season and only after a $100.00 turn-on fee is paid.
**NOTE: The exceptions to this are users in System #5 and the former Black Sage Irrigation District where spray fillers are available.
- All users fertigating, adding chemicals, or using plastic mulch with drip irrigation must do so in compliance with Bylaw # 1351. Non-compliance is an offence punishable by a ticket fine or prosecution through the courts.
- Those users registered for fertigation in 2019 will have their water turned on for spray purposes; however, it will be turned off on May 31, 2020, if they have not provided a current 2020 Certification of their back flow preventer, or have not advised the Town in writing that they will not be fertigating in 2020.
