Extremely hot and dry weather has led to increased restrictions on water use and a ban on open fires in the Cowichan Valley and elsewhere.

Beginning Monday, June 15, the Cowichan Valley Regional District, including Duncan, North Cowichan, Ladysmith, Lake Cowichan and Cowichan Tribes, will to go Stage 2 watering restrictions.

The province has declared that the region is in a Stage 3 drought, but the situation is manageable, according to North Cowichan Mayor and CVRD Board Chair Jon Lefebure.
