Water is a luxury we canít afford to waste. Therefore, the District of Lantzville applies water usage regulations during the summer months. Water usage restrictions limit the amount of outside water use in order to ensure there is an adequate water supply for domestic and emergency needs. It is important to follow the prescribed times as this allows our wells to shut down and the aquifer to recover from increased summer demands.

All water purveyors in the Regional District of Nanaimo have adopted consistently defined water restrictions stages to minimize confusion for residents on community water systems across the region. We appreciate your cooperation in following these restrictions and encouraging your neighbours to do the same. Water Usage Regulations are in effect year round and the 4 stages of water restrictions are outlined in the following document

4 Stages of Water Restrictions

Notices regarding Water Restrictions will be published on the District's website as well as the bulletin board outside the Municipal Hall. If Stage 3 Water Restrictions are reached, residents will be notified via mail or delivery to household.

Planting a new lawn? Check the Water Restriction Stages and confirm the stage currently in effect. If required, you can apply to the Municipal Hall for a new Lawn Permit in Stage 1 or 2; however, it is not available for Stage 3 or 4.
