Stage 3 Water Conservation Measures in effect for Riondel Water System

Nelson, BC: Effective immediately, mandatory Stage 3 Water Conservation Measures are being implemented in the Riondel Water System. High water demand has resulted in low reservoir levels, which requires Riondel Water Users to conserve water.

Stage 3 Water Conservation Measures include:

  • Watering of lawns is prohibited.
  • Watering of new 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.

A complete listing of Water Conservation Measures can be found at Stage 3 Water Conservation Measures will remain in effect until further notice. If appropriate reservoir levels are restored, then Water Conservation Measures can be relaxed.

Riondel water users can sign up free for the RDCK’s water notification service to receive notices about the water system’s water quality, system maintenance activities, and water conservation by telephone call and/or text message, by calling 1-833-223-2662.

The RDCK appreciates Riondel water users’ cooperation in adhering to the water conservation efforts.
