Stage 2 water conservation measures in effect for the Edgewood water system

Nelson, BC:  Effective immediately, the Regional District of Central Kootenay (RDCK) is implementing mandatory Stage 2 water conservation measures for the Edgewood 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 Edgewood Water System requires users to conserve water.

Stage 2 water conservation measures are now in effect:

  • Watering of lawns, gardens, trees and shrubs is ONLY permitted between 6:00 am - 10:00 am and 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm.
  • 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 and stricter water conservation measures may be required if demand increases significantly, or hot and dry weather prevails.

Additional information on water conservation measures are available on the RDCK
