Second Order Issued in Sunshine Coast State of Local Emergency

A second order has been issued for those using the Chapman Water System.

The order is under the Sunshine Coast Regional District’s State of Local Emergency (SOLE), which has been in place since the middle of last month. It’s been issued by the Sunshine Coast Regional District, the District of Sechelt, and shíshálh Nation.

The order extends to the filling of private swimming pools and hot tubs, water usage in recreational cannabis production, and ice installation and maintenance at the Sunshine Coast Arena.

It also affects businesses that involve the transport, processing, cleaning, installation or repair of concrete, cement, asphalt, gravel, or aggregate.

The order comes into effect at end of day November 11th.

Emergency Operations Centre Director Remko Rosenboom says this is another step needed to take to secure water for essential use.

“I want to caution the business community that more orders may be required in the coming weeks due to how precarious the water supply situation may become,” says Rosenboom.

Stage Four water restrictions remain in place for those on the Chapman system.

This comes on the heels of an extension of the SOLE earlier in the day.
