Stage 2 Water Conservation in effect

Publication Date: July 14, 2022


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

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If the situation improves, Stage 2 will be rescinded, but if the water shortage becomes more severe, further discussions will be held prior to recommending moving to Stage 3 Water Conservation.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
