People on the Nanoose Bay Peninsula Water Service Area are on Stage 4 water restrictions.

It’s because of a pump failure at the Craig Bay Pump Station.

Once it’s fixed, the Water Service Area will move to Stage 3 water restrictions to allow the reservoir to fill again.

The City of Parksville moved to Stage 3 water restrictions today (Aug 9).

Stage 3 has the same odd and even watering days as Stage 2 but it asks residents to voluntarily conserve water wherever they can.
