Cherry Creek, Beaver Creek imposes water restrictions

Stage 1 water restrictions now in effect

Two areas in the Alberni-Clayoquot Regional District have imposed water restrictions.

The Cherry Creek Waterworks District in the Alberni Valley will be implementing Stage 1 water restrictions effective immediately.

The decision was made by the district’s board of trustees in order to ensure a safe, sustainable, long-term water supply throughout the dry summer months.

Residents living in the Beaver Creek Water System are also under Stage 1 restrictions, as of June 17.

Even numbered addresses can water or use a sprinkler on even numbered days and odd numbered addresses can water/sprinkle on odd-numbered days from 6-9 a.m. and 6-9 p.m.

Residents can continue with drip/micro irrigation and hand watering any day to a maximum of two hours, including vegetable gardens. Residents can use a hose with a spring-loaded nozzle or watering pail/bucket to wash vehicles and outdoor surfaces

Earlier this week, the City of Port Alberni also implemented Stage 1 water restrictions.
