Due to a broken part, the bulk water station located at the Sorrento- Blind Bay Community Park, 2670 Davidson Road, is out of service until further notice.

A new part has been ordered, and it is hoped the water station will be back in operation next week.

Customers who require potable water are encouraged to use the City of Salmon Arm's bulk water station at Blackburn Park. A bulk water card can be purchased at Salmon Arm City Hall, located at 500 - 2nd Avenue NE. For information on the city's bulk water rates or service, contact 250-803-4000.

The CSRD apologizes for the inconvenience and will update residents on this website and our social media platforms as soon as the bulk water station is back in operation.

An important note for users of the Sorrento Bulk Water station. Bulk water users have been directed to an alternate source of potable water in Salmon Arm at Blackburn Park, however, the connection required to use the Salmon Arm station is different than the one for Sorrento. 

If you wish to use the Salmon Arm bulk water station, a 2.5-inch connector is needed. The CSRD has been made aware that these 2.5-inch connectors are currently out of stock in Salmon Arm. This means users will have to source one in Vernon or Kamloops to use the Salmon Arm Bulk Water System.
