Council has voted to exempt properties in Zone 1 and Zone 2 (on aquifer water) from Stage 4 Water Restrictions for the balance of 2015. Staff will be updating the Town's Drought Management Plan to include a water conservation plan for all zones within the Town and providing a report to Council in January or February of 2016 to inform a discussion on water restrictions for 2016 and forward.

Properties in Zone 3, on SCRD water, will continue to follow the SCRD Water Restrictions.

During Stage 4 Micro Drip Systems(those that consume less than 20 gallons/75 litres per hour) are prohibited - they may be used at Stage 3.

In Zone 3 (see map to verify), Commercial Food Growers with Farm Status and Water Meters installed may continue to water food crops during Stage 4.
