Effective immediately absolutely NO watering of vegetable plants, flowers or lawns. Our well is struggling to keep up with this heat wave and lack of rain.
If you wish to water you are welcome to use lake water that you haul yourselves.
Please help us conserve water so that the well can keep up.
Please, small fires only at this time. Remember to have your spark screen in place. With this extended heat wave forests throughout southern BC and in our region are very dry. There is currently a fireworks ban in place and we will let you know here as soon as we know if/when a campfire ban is in effect.
Another reminder — please don’t leave large cardboard boxes at the garbage cans — these should be taken to the recycle station at Baynes Lake or Jaffray. We would appreciate your cooperation as we are only hauling household garbage.
Thank you for your attention to these matters and enjoy your time here in the summer sunshine at Koocanusa.
