Water Conservation Get the FAQs (Frequently Asked Questions)
Posted 28-5-16
Ships Point residents rely on underground aquifers for their supply of fresh water. We share this resource with each other, with our neighbors in the Fanny Bay area and with some local industrial users. As a Provincial water licensee, the Ships Point Improvement District, the agency that manages the water system, has a responsibility to protect that water supply and to ensure householders continue to get as adequate an amount of clean, healthy water delivered to their homes as possible. Water supplies can be impacted by drought. In order to manage this risk, SPID is introducing voluntary water conservation guidelines to our community. Water conservation guidelines are now a standard practice amongst municipalities across North America.
Ships Point Voluntary Water Conservation Guidelines (2016)

  • Hand watering should be done using a hand-held container or a hose equipped with a shutoff device
  • Micro-irrigation and drip-irrigation deliver a slow moving supply of water at a gradual rate directly to the soil resulting in water savings
  • Washing vehicles, boats and houses (siding) should be done using a hand-held container or a hose equipped with a shutoff device
