Restrictions to assist with recharging reservoir water supply
The Resort Municipality of Whistler (RMOW) asks everyone to conserve water by following the Stage 2 Water Conservation requirements. Limiting water use ensures Whistler’s reservoirs have sufficient volume to fight fire.
Stage 2 Outdoor Potable Water Conservation allow lawns, trees, shrubs and flower beds to be watered by hand on Monday, Wednesday and Saturday from 8 p.m. to 10 a.m., by automatic in-ground irrigation any day between 10 p.m. and 7 a.m, or by automatic drip irrigation at anytime. A complete list of restrictions and permitted uses for each water conservation level is available at whistler.ca/WaterConservation.
Water reservoir levels have decreased, due to increased water usage in the warmer weather. Fire risk continues to be a concern in the community and having adequate water to fight fire at all times is critical.
If the situation improves, Stage 2 will be rescinded, but if the water shortage becomes more severe, further discussions will be held prior to recommending moving to Stage 3 Water Conservation.
Violations can be reported to Bylaw Enforcement at 604-935-8280 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
