The District of Clearwater is asking residents to take steps to conserve water.
A combination of high stream flows, and limited capacity have put a squeeze on the district’s ability to keep up with demand.
Chief Administrative Officer Leslie Groulx says one of the two wells water is normally drawn from is down as officials construct a third well – meaning current high demand for water is falling to a single well.
“It all falls to well number 2 which does have a bit of manganese so that does create discolouration in the water but its not a health issue in the levels that we have.”
The district is asking people to take measures to conserve water such as refraining from watering lawns or washing vehicles.
