North Salt Spring Water District (NSSWD) is moving to Level 3 Watering Restrictions effective July 18, 2018.
Click here to find out how you can user your water during Level 3 watering restrictions.
Many factors are considered in the decision to move to Level 3 watering restrictions including current lake levels, the rate of lake drawdown, weather conditions, regional drought levels, seasonal forecasts for temperature and precipitation, and regulatory requirements.
With very hot weather and no rain in the forecast for the rest of July, additional conservation is needed to ensure that water supplies are sufficient to last until the lakes refill this winter. By conserving water now, NSSWD hopes to avoid moving to Level 4 watering restrictions later in the summer.
NSSWD appreciates your efforts to conserve water.
