Our Mission

At Otter Lake Water District, we are committed to providing safe, high quality water services to our community, while maintaining a standard of excellence in customer service and environmental conservation.

Billing

Otter Lake Water District Ratepayers are billed annually through your Municipal taxes with the Municipality of Spallumcheen.  This will include an annual tax of $325.00, a base rate of $220.00 plus your metered tolls.  All fees are due July 2 of each calendar year.

The increase for the base rate is due to the new Provincial well registering guidelines.  This will impact the district $2068 annually.

 

Spring Flushing Program

Otter Lake Water District will start our Spring Cleaning.  We will be flushing lines and cleaning reserviors during the month of April.  Please watch for road signs and alerts on our website.  If you should notice any discolouration in your water, run your taps until it clears.  It is best not to do any white laundry while any flushing is going on in your neighborhood.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact our office.

September has arrived, and autumn is well on its way.

As the summer heat begins to fade, and the first hints of red and gold begin to appear, it’s a great time to relax and enjoy the mild weather. Next Monday, September 7, is Labor Day/ Labour Day, a day which honors the achievements of our workforce —a "yearly national tribute to the contributions workers have made to the strength, prosperity, and well-being of our countr[ies].” Department of Labor.  
So, take a break, rest from your labor, and enjoy the respite. 

Then, after your rest, take advantage of this time to plan ahead. September is considered “National Preparedness Month” in the US: a month to get ready, to get prepared for harsher weather and conditions that will be coming, and a time to prepare for any emergencies that might arise.
So, use this September to make sure that you —and your home— are ready.
