Current Water Restrictions

Regular Stage 1 Watering Restrictions are in effect from May 1-October 31 annually for the Town of Ladysmith, Diamond Improvement District and Stz’uminus First Nation.

These regular annual restrictions are intended to help control water usage as we start watering lawns and gardens with the warmer, dryer weather. 

Remember, being water-wise throughout the year can also save you money. With a little effort, we can reduce the amount of water we use at home by as much as 40 percent!

Thank you for your cooperation

The Town obtains its water from two sources -- Holland Creek and Stocking Lake. 

Water is a very precious resource, and therefore the Town is taking several measures to encourage citizens to reduce consumption, including:

  • Implementation of water restrictions during the dry season
  • Installation of water meters at all residences and businesses to help determine and repair any leaks in the system and to monitor consumption
  • Distribution of educational water-wise mail-outs to all households
  • Implementation of regulations making low-flow toilets mandatory in all new construction and renovations
  • Installation of low-flow toilets in all municipal facilities
  • Undertaking capital upgrades to the water supply and storage system
