Enderby is watching water levels closely.

City officials are monitoring both water availability and consumption on a daily basis as the region continues to experience dry conditions.

“The city has mandatory watering restrictions that are in effect, in addition to its water metering program,” said Tate Bengtson, chief administrative officer.

“Bylaw enforcement is making regular patrols of the community to ensure that the restrictions are being followed. “

And conservation appears to be working.

There was a 17 per cent reduction in average daily demand in July compared to last year, while maximum daily demand is down 30 per cent.

Projects continue

Progress is being made on a number of infrastructure projects in Enderby.

Construction is presently proceeding on the Regent Avenue lift station.

“This is a million-dollar upgrade to deal with storm water and reduce flood events in the community,” said Tate Bengtson, chief administrative officer.

The Vernon Street road upgrade has gone to tender and construction is expected to begin in September.

 

Installation of the replacement chiller for the arena is also nearly completed.
