November 2, 2015 – The Provincal drought level is currently at Level 1, however, our lake levels are just starting to rise thanks to the recent rainfall. The District is being cautiously optimistic at this time as a lack of rainfall over the winter months could still mean that the lakes may not fully recharge. Therefore, the District must continue at Level 3 Conservation Regulations until further notice.
