New Region-Wide Water Regulation Bylaw

Bylaw 2824, 2019


Pictures say a thousand words, and we hope these new water system status images 'speak' to you. 

Bylaws and Water Use Restrictions are to protect the water source, the infrastructure, and all water users on the system.  The images are specifically designed to depict a lake extraction type of water system (a pipe submerged into a lake), or a ground water well based system (an inland drilled well). The RDOS has both lake and well based water systems.
