Stage 2 Water Restrictions in Effect for Nelson

Stage 2 Water Restrictions FB Jostle

Watering Restrictions - Stage Two

The City of Nelson has moved to Stage 2 water conservation measures as our source water supply continues to drop to seasonal low levels with the absence of substantial rainfall in our region. 

Stage 2 means that watering lawns with a sprinkler or irrigation system is only permitted ONCE A WEEK.  

EVEN numbered addresses - Wednesdays 

ODD numbered addresses - Thursdays 

Please water between 4:00 am - 9:00am or 7:00pm - 10:00pm.

You may hand water your garden using a shut-off nozzle during these hours any day of the week. 

Washing sidewalks, driveways, or house exteriors is NOT permitted. 

And remember, if water runs off your lawn and down the street, you're using too much water.

View the Water Restriction Stages for more information about the regulations. Should the restriction stage change, notice will be sent out via our City of Nelson Facebook page and published on our website. 


If you have any questions regarding watering restrictions, please contact our Department of Public Works at 250-352-8238.
