RDN Transitions Back to Stage 2 Watering Restrictions Immediately, Stage 1 on October 1
The Province of B.C. downgraded the Eastern Vancouver Island drought ranking to Level 2. This follows the weather shift to cooler temperatures and the return of precipitation that has helped streamflow levels recover after a sustained drought period. In response, Regional District of Nanaimo (RDN) water service areas are moving back to Stage 2 watering restrictions except the Decourcey Water Service Area immediately until Friday, October 1, 2021, when Stage 1 will come into effect as per the regional watering restrictions framework.
