City workers are keeping a close watch on water levels
Utilities Superintendant Brian Mousely said there is no more water coming into the China Creek Reservoir, so they’ve opened the line from Lizard Lake to supplement supplies.
He said more than 18,000 cubic metres of water is being used daily, which is unsustainable and will hopefully decrease now that cooler nighttime temperatures have arrived.
He said there is currently no water restrictions in place, but that could change unless usage rates drop to 15,000 cubic metres daily.
According to the long-range forecast we could get some rain in the beginning of September, which could save the city from imposing restrictions.
