Lakeview Heights ‘looks like Hell’ thanks to DWK

I have had to stop watering my grass and put small sprinklers under each tree to water them.

Re: Water Rates Too High In West Kelowna.Sept. 4 Capital News.

I agree with the writer.

I live on a one acre lot on Boucherie Road. I have several peach, cherry, apricot and plum trees. I used to water my grass and trees for 12 hours every nine days. My tax bill in 2010 was similar to the Lakeview irrigation tax bill of $236.

Then in 2011 we were put on water meters with ridiculous rates.

I have had to stop watering my grass and put small sprinklers under each tree to water them. The sprinklers are on timers.

If I watered now like I did prior to 2011 my water tax bill would be in excess of $1,500.

My grass is brown and looks like Hell. Lakeview Heights used to be a beautiful green community. Smarten up District of West Kelowna and put in sensible water rates.
