Reminder - Metro-Vancouver Water Restrictions Take Effect May 1

April 8, 2019 – Metro Vancouver

This is a reminder of Metro Vancouver’s new Drinking Water Conservation Plan (DWCP) and the implementation of new Stage 1 watering restrictions on May 1, 2019.

The primary purpose of the DWCP is to manage the use of drinking water during periods of high demand, mostly during late spring to early fall and, if necessary, during periods of water shortages and emergencies.

The DWCP applies to all residents and businesses in the region supplied with water from the Greater Vancouver Water District.
