Welcome to Team WaterSmart! | teamwatersmart.ca

Here in the Regional District of Nanaimo, we enjoy some of the best water in the world. Maintaining this precious resource requires that we all use water with care. Whether you live in a rural community or an urban setting, what you do today can affect local water quality for years to come.

On the 'wet coast' of BC, it is easy to take our water supply for granted. In dry summer months, water consumption triples, even though there is much less water available. As the region grows, more people will be using the same limited resource. The quantity and quality of our water is directly impacted by human activity including the amount we use on a daily basis. It is important that we all do our part to protect our water.

Are Watering Restrictions are in Effect for my Area?

During the spring and summer, practical watering restrictions help us manage our water supply as the dry season ensues. Not all water providers will initiate watering restrictions, but if they do, each 'Stage' has a consistent definition across the region as part of a new standardized framework to improve clarity.

Please note - Provincial Drought Levels are not the same as local watering restriction stages. See our June 30th news release for clarification.

Team WaterSmart is brought to you by the Regional District of Nanaimo - Drinking Water and Watershed Protection Program, Town of Qualicum Beach, City of Nanaimo, City of Parksville and District of Lantzville.

Weekly Water Saver Contest

To promote outdoor water conservation this summer, Team WaterSmart is running a campaign where residents across the region can nominate themselves and/or their neighbours who are going above and beyond to save water outdoors. There will be weekly prize draws and a grand prize draw for a rain barrel at the end of the summer! Click Here for more details.
