As of July 5, the the City of Parksville is at water conservation Level 2 under its new water service bylaw.
The new bylaw brings watering restrictions in line with the Regional District of Nanaimo’s four-level system, gives residents more flexibility and encourages lowering maximum water demands.
It allows residents to water every other day, with decreasing amounts of time available for watering at each, more strict conservation level.
Under each conservation level even numbered addresses may water on even numbered days and odd numbered addresses may water on odd numbered days.
The available watering times, or window, are the same at all conservation levels, 6 to 10 a.m. and 6 to 10 p.m. but the total amount of watering each house can do changes within that window.
At Level 2 residents can water a total of four hours within the allotted time and on the proper day.
