Agricultural Irrigation

The City’s Public Works department will begin filling both City agricultural irrigation systems from April 15-19, 2024. 

The City’s agricultural irrigation systems include: 

  • Penticton Creek Irrigation System (Naramata Road Area)
  • Ellis Creek Irrigation System (Valleyview Road Area)

These dates are dependent on the weather conditions and may be subject to change.  Agricultural users and others with connections from these systems should take whatever precautions necessary if private systems are not to be filled and pressurized at this time.

The City of Penticton is in the process of making upgrades to the irrigation system service connections. System users with a new blue irrigation service connection similar to the one shown will find the system loaded to the point of the gate valve on the homeowner side of connection (red arrow).  


Once the City system is loaded and you require water, simply turn on gate valve and load the private system.  As new pressure reducing valves were installed with the new service connections, there may be some required adjustments. Please contact Public Works Department at 250-490-2500 to arrange for a technician to adjust the pressure.
