A planned BC Hydro outage will affect the ability to refill the Saratoga Water System's reservoir between 9:30 AM and 4 PM on July 12.
The CSRD will fill the reservoir before the power outage, so residents should not be without water. However, residents are asked to conserve water during those hours tomorrow to ensure an adequate water supply for residents' basic needs.
Please try to reduce the use of large appliances like washing machines and dishwashers. Do not turn on sprinklers during that time.
Remember, all CSRD-operated water systems are subject to sprinkling restrictions from May 15 to September 15 annually:
- Even numbered houses on even dates.
- Odd numbered houses on odd dates.
Sprinkling is permitted between the hours of 6 AM to 10 AM and 6 PM to 10 PM. There is to be no sprinkling between 10 AM and 6 PM on any day.
Automatic sprinkling systems should be programmed to operate between midnight to 6 AM on the appropriate day.
We appreciate your efforts to conserve water during this temporary hydro disruption.
