During late spring and summer, Campbell River has two distinct periods throughout the day where water demand can surpass the production limit of our water distribution and disinfection facilities.

The watering restrictions will allow for more consistent water usage and decrease probability of surpassing the production limit.

The watering restrictions bylaw is a first step to water conservation. There are many other ways to improve water efficiency outdoors.

To assist you in navigating through the bylaw, a watering restrictions reference table has been created.
