Effective immediately, mandatory Stage 2 Water Conservation Measures are being implemented in the Balfour Water System. High water demand has resulted in low reservoir levels, which requires Balfour Water Users to conserve water.

Stage 2 water conservation measures include:

· Watering of lawns, gardens, trees, and shrubs is ONLY permitted between 6:00am-10: 00 am and 8:00pm-10: 00 pm.

· Watering of gardens, trees, and shrubs by watering can or hand-held hose is still permitted anytime.

The RDCK appreciates Balfour water users’ cooperation in adhering to the above water conservation measures. 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.

More details are available on the RDCK website at www.rdck.ca/water.
