Watering Restrictions in Effect

Stage one watering restrictions are back in effect in Campbell River. While homes on reserve are not required to follow the restrictions, the Band does draw water from the municipal system, so members are encouraged to follow the guidelines.

Lawn watering is permitted as follows:

Odd-numbered house addresses water on Sunday, Tuesday, Thursday from 5 to 9 a.m. and 7 to 10 p.m.
Even-numbered house addresses water on Monday, Wednesday, Saturday from 5 to 9 a.m. and 7 to 10 p.m.

Nathalie Viau, the City’s water supervisor, says “even with the water supply stored in the lakes behind Campbell River, the system of pipes and pumps limits how much water we can deliver throughout the community, and we need to have enough water available in the system for firefighting, so watering restrictions come into effect every year on May 1.”

More water restrictions information is available on the City website www.campbellriver.ca, including permitted watering activities, watering times for non-residential properties and watering restriction stages and schedules.
