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.

In the water . . . but out of harm's way

In the water . . . but out of harm's way

August 01, 2020

Swimming pools and beach vacations, waterskiing at the lake and rafting on the river, canoeing, kayaking, fishing, boating, wake boarding, tubing, jet skiing, snorkeling, sailing, surfing, and swimming - when it's summertime and the mercury is on the rise, there is nowhere we'd rather be than in the water! North America’s lakes, rivers, and seas are oases of beauty and respite from the summer sun, so it’s no surprise that swimming is summer’s number one pastime. But as you enjoy the season's final days, please make water safety your first priority. Swimming cools us off and keeps us fit, but it can also be dangerous. Drowning is the number one cause of unintentional death among children aged 1-4, and it's the number two cause of unintentional death among those aged 5-24. A moment of distraction can be fatal, so please take great care to keep yourself and your loved ones safe in the water.
