Low Water Conditions

Credit Valley Conservation (CVC), in partnership with the Ministry of Natural Resources and Forestry, helps to coordinate and support the local response in the event of a drought. We monitor local water levels and precipitation and participate in a water response team consisting of representatives from the province, municipalities, conservation authorities, local water users and interest groups.

Levels of Low Water Conditions:


NORMAL: Conditions are within normal limits.


LEVEL 1: First indication of potential water supply problems, primarily a warning level – key focus is on voluntary conservation of water.


LEVEL 2: Indicates a potentially serious problem – conservation of water is extended to provincial/municipal restrictions on non-essential uses.


LEVEL 3: Indicates a failure of the water supply to meet demand – key focus is on conservation, provincial/municipal regulation and provincial/municipal enforcement of non-essential uses.
