All landowners with metered irrigation systems are reminded to not blow out your irrigation system through your water meter or any other district works. You are required under bylaw to have a working isolation valve and blow-off port downstream of the district meter. This enables you to winterize your irrigation system without needing SEKID to shut off your main service valve. Not only can improperly blowing out irrigation systems cause damage to meters and drains, it can also push contaminated water back into the public water system and become a  public health threat.

Damage to SEKID works, including water meters, caused by improperly winterizing irrigation systems can be charged back to the owner of the property. For more information about isolation valves and metered irrigation systems follow this link.
