Parksville sticks with Level 4 restrictions

A city spokesperson said late last week officials had spoken about changing the watering restrictions level, but decided against it

The campfire ban has been lifted, the rains continue to fall, but residents of the City of Parksville remain under the restrictions of drought Level 4.

A city spokesperson said late last week officials had spoken about changing the watering restrictions level, but decided against it.

City council meets Wednesday night and there may be some news about watering restrictions from that meeting.

Campfires have been permitted throughout the Parksville Fire Protection Area as of Aug. 28.

The Coastal Fire Centre rescinded its campfire prohibition due to forecasted cooler and wetter conditions, resulting in a decrease in wildfire risk in the region.

Campfires that are no larger than a half-metre high by a half-metre wide and open fires in an outdoor stove are now permitted.
