Stage 3 Water Use Restrictions have been put into effect in the District of Taylor.

The restrictions have been implemented because of a drop in the Peace River water level.

The restrictions are effective June 21 and include a prohibition on watering lawns, filling pools, hot tubs, ponds, or washing vehicles or boats.

Residents can water plants as long as it is done with a watering can or hose with a shut-off nozzle and only between 4 a.m. and 10 a.m. or 7 p.m. to 10 p.m.

Fines issued under the water conservation bylaw can be $300 per offense.
