Stage 2 Water Conservation

Effective: June 4, 2020

Due to spring run off, rains, and debris the City of Armstrong has switched water source from the Fortune Creek surface supply to groundwater wells.  The creek water is temporarily too high in turbidity to be reliable.  Some of the changes you may notice with the well water are:

  • the water from the wells is slightly warmer and
  • it may taste differently and require more soap for cleaning. 

Well water is entirely safe to use. The City continues to work with Interior Health to regularly test our water supply. As the well water is limited, it is necessary to implement Stage 2 Water Restrictions immediately.  

During Stage 2 Restrictions, no person will:

  1. use a sprinkler or irrigation system to water a lawn, garden, trees or shrubs; or
  2. wash driveways, sidewalks, parking lots or exterior building surfaces.

During Stage 2 a person may:

  1. water trees, shrubs, flowers and vegetables if watering is done by hand, but only during the prescribed Stage 1 watering hours and days which are : 
    1. an even numbered address may water on even days of the calendar and
    2. an odd numbered address may water on odd days of the calendar
    3. between the hours of 7 am to 11 am and 7 pm to 11 pm; and
  2. Water newly planted trees, shrubs, flowers and vegetables if watering by hand during installation and for the following 24 hours.

These restrictions apply to all residents of the City of Armstrong, Pleasant Valley and Round Prairie Specified Areas, Highland Park, Stardel, Silver Star and Lansdowne Water Districts and other residents of Spallumcheen receiving City of Armstrong water.
