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.
