RDN News Release - Stage 3 Watering Restrictions in Effect

In response to the record-breaking heatwave and increased demand on local water resources, Stage 3 Watering Restrictions for eight of the nine Regional District of Nanaimo (RDN) Water Service Areas are in effect immediately and until further notice.

Under Stage 3 Watering Restrictions, residents are requested to further reduce non-essential outdoor water use, including curtailing lawn watering and refraining from washing cars or outdoor surfaces. If water demand does not decrease under voluntary measures, it will prompt a move to a Stage 4 comprehensive, outdoor watering ban to ensure essential water needs for household use, cooling measures for health and safety, fire protection and environmental flows can be met.
