Hot and dry temperatures are forecast to continue into July, and over the past week water demand has increased significantly due to outdoor water usage.
Starting today, Monday June 28th, 2021, the City has moved to Level TWO Water regulations. Mandatory water conservation measures are put in place to alleviate demand on the city’s drinking water supply, and to ensure that water is prioritized for potable uses and adequate fire protection.
The City of Nelson’s Mandatory Water Conservation Measures are easy to follow.
