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.


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.
