City of Salmon Arm Water Conservation Request


Based on the current year's snowpack, timing of snowmelt, lack of precipitation and forecasted summer conditions we anticipate a strong likelihood that very dry conditions will result in low stream-flows and lake levels this year. The purpose of this advisory is to notify residents that in the event of another drought during the summer of 2019, the City may have to implement more stringent water restrictions and conservation measures to help ensure that the City’s water delivery system can keep up with the demand for drinking water, commercial and industrial use, while also being able to maintain  water levels in the City’s water reservoirs for future use and fire protection. 

We appreciate your co-operation in adhering to the annual sprinkling restrictions which are in effect from May 15 to Sept. 15.  Residents are encouraged to conserve water wherever possible and reminded that No irrigation/sprinkling is permitted on Monday’s. Failure to comply with these restrictions may result in a fine of up to $50 per instance.
