Stage two water conservation measures are now in effect for users of the  Woodland Heights water system. The system serves the Woodland Heights subdivision of Taghum.

The Regional District of Central Kootenay (RDCK) stated in a press release that the water system is currently experiencing record high levels of demand due to the extreme hot weather and lack of rainfall and therefore are asking all Woodland Heights water system users to conserve water.

Stage two measures include:

Sprinkling of gardens, trees, and shrubs is permitted one day per week only, for a maximum of two hours, between 4 to 7 a.m. and 7 to 10 p.m.

Washing sidewalks, driveways, vehicles, and outdoor surfaces is not permitted.

Filling outdoor hot tubs and swimming pools is not permitted.

The above restrictions apply to the watering of lawns only; watering of flower and vegetable gardens by hose, spring nozzle, and hand-held container is still permitted.

The RDCK appreciates the public’s cooperation in adhering to the above water conservation measures. Stage two measures will remain in effect until further notice.
