The Lower Mainland, Sunshine Coast and Fraser Valley have joined Vancouver Island at Level 4 drought on the provincial scale — meaning if water supplies continue to dwindle, shortages could affect people, industry and agriculture.
The provincial drought rating is distinct from regional ratings used by water managers to set specific limits on lawn watering and other uses.
Several regions have issued water restrictions, including Metro Vancouver, which has issued a stage three water restriction, which bans all lawn sprinkling, personal car washing, and other water use.
Further water restrictions are in place in several Vancouver Island communities as well.
A ban on sports fishing has also been issued for many rivers on the South Coast of B.C.
Updates on highway closures are also posted on the DriveBC website by the Ministry of Transportation.
