[ARCHIVED] CVRD Water Restrictions lowered to Stage 2 for most areas

The Province has lowered the Drought level for East Vancouver Island to Drought Level 3. As a result, most Water Restrictions for the Cowichan region are now lowered to Stage 2 (with the exception of Lake Cowichan - which will remain at Stage 3 and the Shellwood, Burnum and Dogwood Ridge systems, which will remain at Stage 4).


Thank you to all the residents and businesses who’ve been stepping up their water conservation efforts this year. Your help in tackling drought conditions and preserving water for the community is appreciated!
