There are currently no watering restrictions in effect in the City of Campbell River. Stage 2 restrictions were lifted on October 1, 2023.

Residents and businesses are encouraged to continue water conservation practices even when watering restrictions aren’t in place. Learn more about water conservation in Campbell River, including outdoor and Indoor Water Use Tips.


During late spring and summer, Campbell River has two distinct periods throughout the day where water demand can surpass the production limit of our water distribution and disinfection facilities.

The watering restrictions will allow for more consistent water usage and decrease probability of surpassing the production limit.

The watering restrictions bylaw is a first step to water conservation. There are many other ways to improve water efficiency outdoors.
