What’s New: RDKB Drought Report for the Boundary

With continued rising temperatures and the news reporting both record breaking global temperatures and dire drought conditions in regions throughout BC, we need to ensure continued water conservation, reducing evaporation potential when watering outdoors and identifying and implementing water saving options. All the while, ensuring FireSmart practices are maintained and respected. To read the drought update for the Boundary region in its entirety, click here.
