Cranbrook urging residents to conserve water

The City of Cranbrook is moving to voluntary Stage 3 watering restrictions as the Phillips Reservoir has been dropping an average of 3.5 inches per day.

If current water use continues, the city will be implementing mandatory Stage 3 restrictions.

“Maintaining our water levels is imperative so residents can continue to freely use water inside their homes,” says Mayor Wayne Price.

“A voluntary move to Stage 3 restrictions by residents will help delay further outdoor watering restrictions for as long as possible.”

While Stage 3 may be voluntary for now, city staff said it’s even more important to follow the current Stage 2 restrictions.

“If we don’t see compliance with restrictions, Bylaw will be issuing $100 tickets to property owners,” says Paul Heywood, Manager of Building and Bylaw Services.

“Repeat offenders will be fined $200 for their second offence and $500 for every watering offence afterwards.”

Stage 3 restrictions include watering one day a week.

Odd-numbered properties can water on Tuesday and even-numbered properties can water on Thursday between 6:00 a.m. and 8:00 a.m. or 8:00 p.m. and 10:00 p.m.

Full restrictions can be found in the graphic below.
