Nanaimo Watering Restrictions Start Apr.1 2016

Watering restrictions come into effect April 1

Changes in watering restrictions this year

On Friday, April 1, Stage 1 watering restrictions will come into effect. Stage 1 consists of night-time watering only, between 7:00 pm and 7:00 am, any day of the week.

The City of Nanaimo, in cooperation with other water suppliers in the Regional District of Nanaimo, recently adopted a unified approach to watering restrictions. Both the City and Regional District will use the same classification for each watering restriction stage (Stages 1 through 4). Also concurrent will be the allotted hours for watering and start dates for watering restriction Stages 1 and 2.

Stage 1 watering restrictions start April 1, and consist of night-time watering only, between the hours of 7:00 pm and 7:00 am, any day of the week.

Stage 2 will run from May 1 to September 30. Even numbered addresses can water even days of the month; odd numbered addresses can water odd days of the month, for two hours only, between 7:00 am and 10:00 am OR between 7:00 pm and 10:00 pm.

"The new watering restrictions are part of the City’s waterworks bylaw. While the new restrictions are defined the same way across the region there are changes for Nanaimo's residents especially with Stage 1 starting on April 1. There may be an adjustment, but we are confident that the clearer rules will make for a smooth transition."  -  Bill Sims City of Nanaimo
