Watering Restrictions

 The City of Fernie is implementing water restrictions to reduce the risk to staff maintaining this critical service during the COVID-19 health emergency..

Lowering water usage reduces the required frequency for changing chlorine gas bottles at Fairy Creek, which is a high-risk activity requiring multiple people in a tight space.

Thank you for helping us protect our staff by adhering to the following watering restrictions until further notice:
