During summer months, with lower groundwater levels and increased population, it may become necessary to put Watering Restrictions in place. Increasing water stresses may require watering restrictions to become more strict.
The Trustees will declare the Watering Restriction Stage looking at conditions such as weekly static well height readings moving below 10 year averages, water consumption consistently exceeding normal levels, and NSSWD and Provincial water restriction/drought levels.
Permitted Dates are Even Dates for even-numbered residences, and Odd Dates for odd-numbered residences.
