District of Squamish Stage 2 water restrictions now in effect

In anticipation of seasonal temperature increases and corresponding increases in outdoor water demand, the District of Squamish has moved to Stage 2 water restrictions effective Tuesday, July 10.

Outdoor water use restrictions are in place to effectively manage the supply and demand of water across the community during the summer months when consumption skyrockets.  

Stage 2 divides the community into seven areas, and provides each area with ONE day upon which they can water with a sprinkler:



Valleycliffe, Hospital Hill
Dentville, Business Park, North Yards
Loggers Lane/ Finch Drive, Quest University
Garibaldi Highlands
Garibaldi Estates

Not sure of your watering day? View the Outdoor Water Use map.

Even numbered addresses: 6 a.m. to 9 a.m. 

Odd numbered addresses: 7 p.m. to 10 p.m.

Watering with a hand-held container or device with automatic shut-off is allowed on any day between 6 to 9 a.m. and 7 to 10 p.m. Tip: Invest in a reasonably priced water timer ($15 to $40 at local hardware stores) to pre-set your sprinkler the night before your designated watering day.

To learn more about what's allowed during Stage 2 view our Outdoor Water Use Chart
