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 Riondel Water System. The system is located in the community of Riondel, on the east shore of Kootenay Lake with access off of Highway 3A. Riondel is within RDCK Electoral Area A.

The Stage 2 Water Conservation Measures have been implemented due to a power outage to the treatment plant that occurred on Saturday, July 16, 2022 resulting in low reservoir levels.

Stage 2 water conservation measures include:

  • 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. Stricter water conservation measures may be required if demand increases significantly, hot and dry weather persists, or if the reservoir declines to critically low levels.

Additional water conservation measures are available on the RDCK
