Water Restrictions Public Engagement, Summer 2022
We Want to Hear From You!
This summer, the City of Campbell River is launching a pilot project to try out revised water restriction stages while engaging with the community – both residents of single family homes and relevant lawncare businesses (i.e. lawncare/landscaping) on the effectiveness of the proposed changes. Changes to the restriction phases are being considered in order to offer more flexibility for residents, relevant businesses and City operations, while ensuring that the City can always provide water for critical services such as fire protection.

WATERING RESTRICTIONS IN EFFECT MAY 1 TO SEPTEMBER 30
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.
