The Capital Regional District (CRD) is urging residents and businesses in North Saanich to reduce their water usage.

While utility crews are working to resolve the shortage, residents located north of John Road in North Saanich are at risk of low pressure or possible service interruptions if they do not conserve their water.

The issues are because of a dramatic increase in the use of water over the past weekend.

Lawn and garden watering with automatic sprinklers outside of the water conservation bylaw timeframes can place high and unpredictable demand on the system, the CRD said in a statement.

Currently, BC is experiencing a “dangerous” heat wave which is affecting businesses and homes.

The high today, June 28th, is 36 degrees celsius.
