Stage 2 water restrictions will be in effect in Squamish on Monday, July 11.
The stage two divides the community into seven areas, and provides each area with one day when they can water a lawn with a sprinkler, in either the morning or evening, based on the civic address. Each area has one day to water lawns, with a sprinkler, in either the morning or the evening, based on the civic address.
Although water appears abundant in Squamish, fresh drinking water has a finite capacity, says the District of Squamish. “Costly upgrades to infrastructure can be deferred through minimizing potable water use, as well as reducing costs associated with water treatment and pumping.”
Outdoor water restrictions are in place to effectively manage the supply and demand of water across the community during the summer months when peak water usage is nearly double the volume of the winter months.
