September 18 - 30, 2020

Due to a continuous decrease of the reservoir’s water level, it is strongly recommended that all Eagle Cliff Water Users follow Stage 4 of the Water Conservation Guidelines. The reservoir level is lower than it should be at this time of year, and until we receive substantial rainfall we recommend that all Eagle Cliff Water Users follow Stage 4.

Bluewater Park Stage 4 Water Conservation

August 18 - September 15, 2020

Due to ongoing hot and dry weather conditions and the water supply challenges that the BWP Water System is experiencing, staff recommend that Bluewater Park water users follow Stage 4.

While Stage 4 prohibits all outdoor use of water, we recognize that every household’s water usage patterns are different and therefore we only recommend that watering of vegetable gardens is reduced to the absolute minimum and by hand only – not entirely prohibited.

Water Conditions

Drinking water and persons with compromised immune systems

January 1 - December 31, 2020

The Provincial Health Officer advises all British Columbians with compromised immune systems (such as HIV, organ or bone transplants, chemotherapy or medications that suppress the immune system) to avoid drinking water from any surface water or ground water that is under the influence of surface water, unless it has been boiled, filtered, distilled or treated with UV. Bowen Island and other areas in British Columbia use surface water sources (lakes, rivers, streams). This is not a general boil-water advisory for the general public, but rather is directed only at persons with compromised immune systems.  If in doubt about your immune system status, please discuss this further with your physician.
