Grand Forks moves to stage 1 water restrictions

High spring river levels is enough to convince most of Grand Forks council to lower their water restrictions.

This will mean a move back down to stage 1 which has not been seen since before July last year.

Councillor Julia Butler believes there is no reason to remain at the strict stage 2 at the moment and even last year there was no major groundwater shortage.

But a key concern for city officials is the cost for treating and delivering water and for removing wastewater and there’s division on council around conservation.

Such watering had been allowed only twice a week.
