City of Kelowna Well Regulation Bylaw

The City of Kelowna Well Regulation Bylaw regulates the disconnection and closure of wells on properties connected to the City Water Utility.

The bylaw includes options for water well owners to professionally decommission their wells in order to connect to the City utility or, for those wishing to keep their wells for personal or irrigation use, to register them with the Province providing they are completely disconnected from City water sources.

The closure of these private wells reduces the potential for contamination of the City system, and in turn protects the health and safety of residents and the natural environment.
