The last day of irrigation for the 2018 season is October 14, 2018. Irrigation Turns off are scheduled to commence October 15, 2018. This applies to all customer with metered irrigation services.  Irrigating without an approved Special Irrigation Application is not permitted after October 14, 2018.

If you wish to apply for late irrigation, please fill out the Special Irrigation Application Form  available under Account Services and submit it by email to Info@sekid.ca.

Your application will be reviewed and you will be notified by district staff of the outcome of that review. Forms can also be picked up and dropped off in person at the district office. Late irrigation will not be granted to any property exceeding the annual allotment. 

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.
