Emergency water restrictions to be implemented for remediation work on the Lister Water System

Nelson, BC: The Regional District of Central Kootenay (RDCK) is implementing emergency water restrictions for the Lister Water System, effective Monday, September 11 at 1:00 pm through Tuesday, September 12 at 6:00 pm. The RDCK is requesting all users to limit water use to essential use only.

The emergency water restrictions have been implemented due to well remediation work that requires the well pump to be offline and the water system to be supplied from the reservoir volume alone.

Emergency water restrictions include the following essential uses only:

  • Drinking water
  • Food preparation
  • Minimal laundry/sanitary
  • NO irrigation permitted

The RDCK recommends users set aside an additional water supply the night prior to the effective date.

The RDCK appreciate your cooperation in adhering to the above water use. Water users will be notified once restrictions are no longer required, or if an extension is necessary.
