Stage 2 Water Conservation Measures in Effect for the Riondel Water System

Nelson, BC:  Effective immediately, mandatory Stage 2 Water Conservation Measures are being implemented in the Regional District of Central Kootenay’s (RDCK) Riondel Water System. The system is experiencing high water use and declining reservoir levels. As a proactive measure for the anticipated extended hot weather and high levels of demand, the Riondel Water System requires users conserve water.


  • Watering of lawns, gardens, trees and shrubs is ONLY permitted between 6:00am-10:00am and 8:00pm-10:00pm.
  • Watering of gardens, trees and shrubs by watering can or hand-held hose is still permitted anytime.

The RDCK appreciate your 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, stream flows decline, or hot and dry weather prevails.

Additional water conservation measures are available on the RDCK website:
