During late spring and summer, Campbell River has two distinct periods throughout the day where water demand can surpass the production limit of our water distribution and disinfection facilities.

The watering restrictions will allow for more consistent water usage and decrease probability of surpassing the production limit.

The watering restrictions bylaw is a first step to water conservation. There are many other ways to improve water efficiency outdoors.

To assist you in navigating through the bylaw, a watering restrictions reference table has been created.

Residential Lawn Watering/Irrigation Schedule

Water Restrictions

Days permitted:

  • Even numbered address: Monday, Wednesday and Saturday
  • Odd numbered address: Tuesday, Thursday and Sunday

Times permitted:  5:00 a.m – 9:00 a.m and 7:00 p.m – 10:00 p.m

Watering gardens, trees, shrubs and community gardens by hand or spring-loaded type nozzles with automatic shut-off connected to hose is allowed at any time during the day in all stages of watering restrictions.

Newly seeded and sodded lawns can request a permit from the Water department by contacting the water wise hotline 250-203-2316 or emailing water.wise@campbellriver.ca
