STAGE 2

WATER RESTRICTIONS

The City has implemented Stage 2 watering restrictions effective immediately until further notice. 

This is due to extreme temperatures causing a quick spring runoff, the City of Armstrong is having to switch water source from the Fortune Creek surface supply to groundwater wells. You may notice the well water is slightly warmer, it may taste differently, and require more soap for cleaning. It is entirely safe to use.

During Stage 2 Restrictions, no person shall:

-use a sprinkler or irrigation system

- wash driveways, sidewalks, parking lots or exterior buildings

During Stage 2 Restrictions, a person may:

- Water trees, shrubs, flowers and vegetables if watering is done by hand-held container or a hose equipped with a shut off nozzle, but only during the prescribed Stage 1 watering hours and days which are:- an even numbered address may water on even days and an odd numbered address on odd days - between the hours of 6 am - 10 am or 7 pm - midnight; and

- Water newly planted trees, shrubs, flowers and vegetables if watering by hand during installation and the following 24 hours.

For more information you can review our Water Conservation Bylaw 1689.

Storms

Intense storms can cause localized drainage and flooding issues. To help prevent possible drainage and flooding problems, residents should ensure all catch basin drains and culverts on or near their properties are kept clean of debris at all times. It is very common for drains to become plugged during storm events.

Sand and sand bags are available 24/7 at the lot adjacent the Public Works Yard on Patterson Avenue. Bring a shovel to fill the bags yourself.
