White Rock: The City of White Rock has announced to move to Stage 2 water restrictions in alignment with Metro Vancouver beginning this Friday August 4.

Under Stage 2 restrictions, all lawn watering is prohibited. 

However, residents and businesses can still water their trees, shrubs, and flowers by hand or using soaker hoses or drip irrigation at any time, or by using a sprinkler between 5 am and 9 am any day. 

Vegetable gardens can be watered at any time, the city said in a press release.

“White Rock aligns with Metro Vancouver’s water restrictions as a part of the regional effort to conserve water,” said Mayor Megan Knight. “Due to continued forecasted hot, dry weather, the region is moving to Stage 2 restrictions this Friday. It’s important that we work together to protect our valuable water resources.”
