Be water wise

It's been a hot and dry spring and summer is predicted to be hotter and drier.

And that means water will be at a premium.

A level two drought warning was issued earlier this week for the Vernon area and as the summer progresses, it is expected to get even worse.

So we took to the streets to ask people what they are doing to help conserve water.

In the North Okanagan, the odd-even watering days are in effect meaning homes with even addresses can water Wednesdays, Fridays and Sundays and homes with an odd number can water on Tuesday's, Thursdays and Saturdays.

Other water guidelines include:

  • Automatic timer irrigation may operate between midnight and 6 a.m.
  • Manual sprinklers (moved by hand) may be used between the hours of 6am-10am and 7pm-12am
  • Drip irrigation may operate anytime
  • Customers using a watering can or hose with spring-loaded nozzle may water anytime
