FREE Residential Irrigation System Check-ups
Since 2010, hundreds of residential irrigation check-ups have been performed by Team WaterSmart staff. The program has effectively caught leaks, lowered excessive watering times & advised on water-saving techniques.
Unfortunately due to COVID-19, our popular program is on hold. Please call (250) 390 6560 or email watersmart [at] rdn.bc.ca if you require more information.
FREE Workshop for Residents: Efficient Irrigation
For those who cannot participate in the Irrigation Check-ups, we often offer workshops to encourage people to inspect their own systems.
Efficient Irrigation Round-Table: Municipal & School District Crews
In March 2012, members of municipal and school district grounds crews in the RDN got together to discuss efficient irrigation practices in their line of work. It was an opportunity to share ideas, suggestions and experiences while working together towards the common goal of efficiency.
