Effective immediately, mandatory Stage 2 water conservation measures are being implemented in the South Slocan water system. High water demand has resulted in low reservoir levels, requiring South Slocan water users to conserve water.
The measures include:
• Watering of lawns, gardens, trees and shrubs is only permitted between 6:00 a.m. and 10:00 a.m. and 8:00 p.m. and 10:00 p.m.
• Watering of gardens, trees and shrubs by watering can or hand-held hose is still permitted anytime.
Stage 2 Water conservation measures will remain in effect until further notice and stricter water conservation measures may be required if demand increases significantly, or if hot and dry weather prevails.
Water conservation measures for RDCK water systems are shown in a table at www.rdck.ca/water.
