Water Restrictions Start May 1 end September 30. We are currently in Stage One. The Provincial drought stages are different to municipal water restrictions. Our water restrictions are tied to the Dickson Lake Level.
Please see the Water Shortage Response Plan for details on the different stages and water use activities that are restricted in each stage. Thank you for conserving and reserving during this hot, dry summer!
The City of Abbotsford will be operating the Bevan Avenue Wells at the southwest corner of Mill Lake Park as needed until September 30.
If you divert and use groundwater (e.g. from a well) for non-domestic purposes such as irrigation or commercial purposes, you must now obtain a water licesense and pay water fees and rentals.
Replace your 13L or greater flush volume toilet and receive up to a maximum of two $50 rebates per property.
Looking for monthly water quality reports, visit the Water Quality webpage.
The Abbotsford Mission Water & Sewer Commission is offering free assessments and a rebate program for improving outdoor water use efficiency for properties on the regional water system.
Abbotsford and Mission residents can take advantage of several rebate programs for upgrading toilets, washing machines, landscape and irrigation systems to be water efficient. Note that qualifying customers must receive water from the municipal water system.
*Residents living in the Clearbrook Waterworks District (CWWD) are not eligible for rebates.
Abbotsford and Mission's drinking water undergoes thousands of tests each year to ensure that customers are provided with clean and safe water. Residents can take pride in their drinking water - it continually meets or exceeds quality standards set out in the BC Drinking Water Protection Act and the Canadian Guidelines for Drinking Water Quality.
Water conservation benefits the whole community and ensures that we continue to have a high quality water supply capable of supporting a growing population.
See how you can help conserve and reserve!
