Changes could be coming to Revelstoke water restrictions

The city is looking into reviewing water restrictions ahead of the summer

The City of Revelstoke is considering changes to its water regulations.

City staff has worked with council to “ensure Revelstoke has enough water to provide residents with continued levels of services – even if the drought conditions, seen across B.C., continue.”

A press release explained how last year, Revelstoke experienced what was referred to as “Stage 2” restrictions for the first time, and this was in part the motivation to come up with a plan to “reduce the stark contrast of regulations experienced in 2023.”

The city shared a table to show what each stage would look like should Revelstoke need to restrict water, most likely due to drought.


The stages would be determined by the director of engineering “based on environmental conditions, guidance from the province, water supply system capacity and demand on the system.”
