BMID - 100 Year Anniversary!The Black Mountain Irrigation District proudly celebrates 100 years of existence this year. Our Letters Patent was issued by the Lieutenant Governor of British Columbia on November 3, 1920, and since then BMID has been providing water service to the Black Mountain community. BMID has published a book marking this event, relaying the 100 year history of the District. "Black Mountain Gold" is available at the office for $25.00. Costs have been kept low due to donations from our generous sponsors (Suppliers, Consultants, Contractors etc). We appreciate their contributions to our Community!

Irrigation Turn ON dates:
Crews will begin turning on irrigation services starting the week of April 12, 2021. Earlier turn ons are available between April 1-12, however you must sign a form at the office to accept liablity for replacement of your agricultural meter if it freezes due to the earlier date. A fee of $50.00 for the early turn on is required.
Annual District System Flushing:
Crews perform annual water main flushing throughout the District from May to October, between the hours of 7:30 a.m. and 3:30 p.m., Monday through Friday.
System flushing is required to ensure optimum water quality and removes any sediment deposits that may accumulate over time. Watch for BMID Road Signs in your area during flushing periods.
Customers of Black Mountain Irrigation District are advised that during these periods, you may experience lower than normal water pressure and some temporary discoloration when crews are working in your area. To avoid any inconvenience, please check your water clarity prior to use. If you experience discoloration, run your cold water taps until the water runs clear.
For any further information, please call the BMID office at 250-765-5169.
Annual Summer Sprinkling Regulations:
Kelowna’s four major water utilities have adopted the same year-round, assigned day outdoor watering restrictions for their customers.
Under the current ‘normal’ conditions, odd numbered addresses may water on Tues/Thurs/Sat and even numbered addresses may water on Wed/Fri/Sun. No properties are to water on Mondays. Odd or Even properties are identified by the street address (i.e. the side of the street that you live on), and in the case of stratas, unit numbers do not apply.
Automatic underground irrigation systems may run between 12am (midnight) and 6am. Manual sprinklers and watering by hose (hand watering) may occur between 6am and 10am, and 7pm and 12am up to three days per week on the assigned day.
