South Pender Harbour Water System Moving to Stage 1

Tags:  2023 | News Release
Date Released: October 11, 2023

The Sunshine Coast Regional District (SCRD) is cautiously moving to Stage 1 Water Conservation Regulations in the South Pender Water System.

While water sources in the area are recharging slowly, the SCRD is confident that with more rain expected in the areas of Harris and McNeil Lakes, water conservation regulations can be scaled back to Stage 1 at this time. Staff will monitor water supply and community demand with a view to changing water conservation regulations if required.

The Eastbourne Water System will remain on Stage 4 Water Conservation Regulations. The aquifer that supplies water for residents on Keats Island has not recharged. The SCRD will provide updates on Eastbourne through the community and online channels including the SCRD website and social media.

A water supply update will be provided to the SCRD’s Committee of the Whole on Thursday, October 12, 2023. The meeting begins at 9:30 a.m. and can be viewed on the SCRD’s YouTube Channel. The update will also be posted to on Thursday afternoon.
