BMID Staff

Water is an essential service that Black Mountain Irrigation District provides. In an arid climate such as the Southern Interior, the importance of water is magnified. The staff at BMID is committed to ensuring the water remains safe, reliable, and supplied at the highest possible quality. People that work in the water supply industry are very committed and understand the importance of their duties. Our staff has a long history of providing a high level of service to our community. The Board of Trustees works closely with the Administrator and staff to ensure the best possible outcome for operations and customer service.

Staffing consists of: Administrator; Operations Superintendent; Office Manager, 3 clerical office staff; 11 water distribution and 2 water treatment plant crew.

Our priorities are:

  • First to our existing ratepayers to provide them with a safe and adequate supply of water;
  • to our regulators to make sure we meet all of their requirements for safety, reliability, and sustainability;
  • To provide services to external agencies and persons wishing to do business with BMID, including community groups, local businesses and land developers.

ATTENTION AGRICULTURAL CUSTOMERS:

It is important for the agricultural meter on your property to be properly winterized.

It will be your responsibility to ensure air or water is not blown backwards through the meter into the BMID system during the winterization of your system, as this process will damage the meter. If a meter requires replacement due to a property owner’s lack of care and attention, it will be at the property owner’s expense.

In accordance with the requirements set out in our licensing, BMID crew will begin turning off irrigation during the week of October 2, 2017. At this time they will close the gate valve at the property. The OWNER must ensure this gate valve is OPEN once their irrigation system has been winterized. Failure to open the gate valve may result in a cracked valve which will have to be replaced at the property owner’s expense.

If you have any questions regarding your agricultural meter or this winterization process, please contact the office at 250-765-5169. Thank you for your co-operation.
