The numbers are still coming in but the water restrictions this summer across Metro Vancouver resulted in roughly ten-thousand warnings and 15-hundred fines.
The fines varied among municipalities ranging from 50-dollars to 500.
The question now is, should the fines be bumped up next summer in hopes of better compliance.
North Vancouver City Mayor Darrell Mussatto heads Metro’s Utilities Committee and says at this point nothing is being ruled out.
“I think we can look at a number of different ways to manage the situation so that we can keep our water use down below 1.2 billion litres of water a day.”
But he says a better option might be having restrictions last longer throughout the season.
“Moving towards the earlier regulation dates in May and going longer into October is one thing we can do.”
Mussatto says the public will have a chance for input before a final decision is made.
