Lake Country’s water supply comes from four (4) surface water sources: Beaver Lake, Oyama Lake, Okanagan Lake and Kalamalka Lake. The Water Source Area Map shows the areas served by each of the sources. Seasonal irrigation and water quality information is available in the Spring 2017 water bill insert.
The District operates three (3) water systems: the Lake Country Water System, the Coral Beach Water System, and Lake Pine — which includes six (6) storage dams, six (6) chlorinators, seven (7) reservoirs, eight (8) pumphouses, 34 pressure-reducing stations, and over 125 km of mainlines. District-owned systems serve over 2,400 homes and businesses and about 500 agricultural properties irrigating over 3,700 acres of farmland. Information in more detail is contained within the 2015 Water Operations Annual Report, Water Quality reports and other published water reports.
