Stage 3 Water Conservation Measures in Effect for the Lister Water System
August 31, 2023
Nelson, BC: Effective immediately, the Regional District of Central Kootenay (RDCK) is implementing mandatory Stage 3 Water Conservation Measures for the Lister Water System located in Electoral Area B. Stage 3 Water Conservation Measures have been implemented due to mechanical issues with the well pump. There is a need to reduce water system demand to minimize impact on the well and pump until the planned investigation and remediation on September 11-12. At the time of remediation the well will be offline and the system will be supplied by the reservoir alone, requiring additional water restrictions for essential use only. A reminder notification will be sent to the community prior to the date.
Stage 3 Water Conservation Measures include:
- Watering of lawns is prohibited.
- Watering of gardens, trees and shrubs is ONLY permitted between 6:00am - 10:00am and 8:00pm - 10:00pm.
- Watering using drip irrigation, a watering can, and or hand held hose permitted anytime.
The RDCK appreciates your cooperation in adhering to the above water conservation measures. Stage 3 Water Conservation Measures will remain in effect until further notice. Stricter water conservation measures may be required if demand increases significantly, or if the reservoir declines to critically low levels.
