Dawson Creek and Pouce Coupe asked to conserve water

The watering ban also applies to newly seeded or turfed areas, as no new permits will be given, and previously issued ones are no longer valid.

Watering flower and vegetable gardens, planters, shrubs and trees is still allowed, as long as it is done with a hose that has an automatic shut off device. Residents can wash their boats, RVs and motor vehicles only if it is necessary to operate the vehicle properly and clean the licence plate.

These measures will help conserve the water that is still available until the river levels rise.
