I was going to suggest checking with BC also, it might even be part of their building code now –  I’d heard they were pushing for that but don’t know how it worked out.

Michael, thanks for the link to Swift Current. We’ve got one property here currently under construction where the owner was adamant that they have residential sprinklers and there was lots of discussion surrounding it. We are a fully serviced municipality and they needed to go from a standard 3/4″ water meter to a 1″ to meet the flow rates for 13D. Our water fees are based on size of meter and debate even had to happen for him to get the 1″ meter yet charge him normal 3/4″ rates (which to  me seemed like an absurd discussion – just give him the lower rate)
