SUMMERLAND – If the heat wave resumes the Summerland Treatment Plant could be forced to issue measures to reduce water use in the area.

Due to increased demands the Summerland Water Treatment Plant has been operating at maximum capacity the last week, according to a media release issued today, June 29.

If the demand rises any further the district could be forced to restrict the times and amounts of water used for all industrial, commercial, institutional, agricultural and residential purposes.

The district requests residents and businesses use water wisely in the days and weeks ahead and to reduce use wherever possible.

For more information visit the District of Summerland website.
