Due to extremely low water levels in the Puntledge River this year we are unable to use our river pumps. Therefore we have to go to severe water restrictions for the rest of the summer as of today.
This means no sprinkling, car washing or unnecessary use of water. Please take this notice seriously. We are currently losing levels in our reservoir and will run out of water within a week if we do not start to conserve immediately.
If you have automatic sprinklers please turn them off. If you don’t know how to turn them off, please find out.
We realize this is a huge change but you are not alone. This drought is affecting the whole region and most districts are initiating severe restrictions as soon as possible.
Thank you for being proactive and helping us manage this valuable resource.
This is a board order from the Sandwick Board of Trustees.
