Stage 2 water conservation measures in effect for the Duhamel, South Slocan and Woodland Heights water systems

Nelson, BC: Effective immediately, the Regional District of Central Kootenay (RDCK) is implementing mandatory Stage 2 water conservation measures in the Duhamel, South Slocan, and Woodland Heights water systems. These measures are necessary due to the high water demand and heat warnings being issued by Environment Canada.

“The extended hot and dry weather forecasted for the region has prompted the RDCK to be proactive with these water systems that have historical supply and demand concerns,” said Jason McDiarmid, RDCK Water Utilities Manager.

Stage 2 Water Conservation Measures include:

  • 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 appreciates your cooperation in adhering to the above water conservation measures. Stage 2 water conservation measures will remain in effect until further notice. Stricter water conservation measures may be required if demand increases significantly, hot and dry weather persists, or if the Province requests additional conservation efforts.

The following table provides information on current water conservation measures in RDCK water systems:
