High Water Consumption in Metro Vancouver

Updated August 8, 2023 - Metro Vancouver continues to experience unseasonably warm and dry weather since the end of April 2023, with very minimal precipitation. Although reservoir levels are still within the normal range for this time of year, the short-term weather forecast is showing a continuing trend of warm, dry weather and water consumption across the region continues to be over 20 percent higher than the same period last year.

Metro Vancouver asks all residents to limit outdoor water by following Stage 2 Water Restrictions, which prohibits all lawn watering. Learn more at pittmeadows.ca/waterrestrictions.
