Stage 2 Water Restrictions in Effect

Monday, July 19, 2021 – WESTBANK: Stage 2 water restrictions are now in effect for all Westbank First Nation residents. WFN Law Enforcement Officers can issue fines up to $300 to anyone watering outside of the water regulations. 

Stage 2 watering days are as follows:

  • Even numbered addresses may only water on Saturdays and Tuesdays.
  • Odd numbered addresses may only water on Sundays and Wednesdays.

    Irrigation times are as follows:
  • Automatic irrigation is permitted to run between 12:01 a.m. to 6 a.m. only on designated days. 
  • Manual irrigation is permitted to run between 6 a.m. to 11 a.m. and 6 p.m. to 12 a.m. only on designated days.
  • Sprinkling is never permitted between 11 a.m. and 6 p.m.

WFN Waterworks Law (2005-16) is in effect year-round, providing on-going conservation measures to help reduce peaks in water use and to reduce the high demands on WFN’s water delivery system at any given time. This allows the system to keep up with the demands for clean drinking water, irrigation and commercial use, and gives it the ability to store water for future use (i.e. in case of local fires).
