Currently in STAGE 2 Restrictions


Environment Canada activated a heat warning on the morning of August 12, 2023, for parts of British Columbia, including Campbell River. In response, the City of Campbell River is extending the opening hours of the Centennial Outdoor Pool to 8:30 p.m. and the Willow Point splash park from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. from Sunday through to the end of Wednesday, August 16, 2023. Fees will be waived for all swimmers at the Centennial Pool.

Water restrictions have been eased Sunday, August 13, to Wednesday, August 16, 2023, to allow residents to set up sprinklers to cool down. 

A higher risk of heat-related illness is associated with increasing temperatures. It is important that residents have a heat plan to keep them safe. A heat plan should identify cool zones inside and outside of homes (such as community centres and libraries), ways to cool down (such as taking cool baths or showers and drinking plenty of water), and vulnerable family members and neighbours who are susceptible to heat and should be checked on.

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.
