ABOUT PRIVATE WATER SUPPLY WELLS

IN THE REGIONAL DISTRICT OF CENTRAL OKANAGAN

Click refresh to be sure you see updates.

LAST UPDATE January 25, 2015

This webpage has information about water supply wells and even has contact information for a water witcher located in the Okanagan.  This water witcher may not be as expensive as you may think.  How does $100 sound?

These are well identification numbers for the two wells at Fintry Delta for Valley of the Sun, Upper Fintry and Shalal Road.

If you want to find out about the water recorded for these wells, type the well identification number from above into this database of well information.  When we typed the well ids in, there was nothing recorded yet?  This is the home link to the well database information where there is a phone number you can call to ask about well information.

Right to use unrecorded water
42 (1) It is not an offence for a person to divert water from a stream for extinguishing a fire, but any flow so diverted must be promptly restored to its original channel when the fire is extinguished.

(2) It is not an offence for a person to divert unrecorded water for domestic purpose or for prospecting for mineral, but in a prosecution under this Act the person diverting the water must prove that the water is unrecorded.

Below is a pamphlet we picked up at the Regional District of Central Okanagan Office on K.L.O. Road Kelowna, B.C..  This pamphlet explains the new standards for water supply wells as of November 1, 2005.

There are not a lot of private well rules and regulations as yet, but there are a few.  Here are most of them shown here on this pamphlet below.

B.C.'s Ground Water Protection Regulation - What Private Well Owners Should Know
B.C.'s Ground Water Protection Regulation - What Private Well Owners Should Know
click page 1 of 2 of this pamphlet to read larger print

This pamphlet says that if you drill deeper than 50 feet you need a qualified well driller.

All water supply wells constructed after November 1, 2005 are legally required to meet the minimum construction standards in the Ground Water Protection Regulation. This means that new drilled and dug water supply wells must have the following described in this pamphlet:

We also picked up another pamphlet at the Regional District of Central Okanagan office on KLO Road in Kelowna which had this illustration of "Good Well Construction".

A picture with illustration of good well construction - Kelowna BC
click pamphlet to read larger print.

You probably want to make sure that the well is constructed correctly because if the area around the screen at the bottom of the well is not prepared with the proper materials, some material could penetrate your screen clogging up your well.  The screen should keep the soil particles out, or your well may stop producing water and seal up.

Here is another pamphlet we picked up at the Regional District of Central Okanagan office on KLO Road describing regulations for riparian areas.  You need to read this if you are within 30 m of a watercourse.  This pamphlet talks about streams, lakes, wetland or ditch on or beside your property that may affect you.

If your project is a residential, commercial, or industrial activity within 30 metres of a watercourse, and you are planning any of the following described in this pamphlet (below) the Riparian Areas Regulation may affect your development.  The regulation encourages responsible development.  This pamphlet describes the regulation and how to get your project approved.

Riparian areas are the areas bordering on steams, lakes, and wetlands that link water to land.  The blend of streambed, water, trees, shrubs, and grasses directly influences and provides fish habitat the pamphlet says.
