Drinking water conservation starts May 1, 2023

See Alerts for latest information regarding your water system restrictions.

BIM follows drinking water conservation guidelines to manage the demand for drinking water during the summer months.

These guidelines are intended to manage demand for drinking water during the summer months, and if necessary during times of emergencies. This is important because:

  • rainfall is lower and demand is higher in the summer
  • climate change is affecting rainfall frequency and intensity
  • storage capacity is limited
  • water shortages may result from unforeseen emergency situations such as earthquakes
