The water restrictions remain in effect.
Water Restrictions – Level 2
The current dry conditions are depleting the raw water reservoir contents, causing a need to reduce the demand on the available volumes of water. At this time, the Town of Black Diamond has declared a Level 2 water restriction in order to provide the necessary reduction in water use. Level 2 restrictions are outlined here, and more fully detailed in Bylaw 14-14 (link below) Water Use and Conservation Bylaw.
