Water Sprinkling Restrictions

Starting in 2011, residential lawn sprinkling hours (for all units at 678 and 688 Citadel Drive) are restricted to;

Sprinkling permitted 4:00am to 9:00am
on Monday, Wednesday and Saturday

That’s when the least amount of water used on lawns will evaporate.  These restrictions are in place from June 1 to September 30.

These restrictions are crucial to managing the demand for drinking water during the summer period, and are Stage 2 of the region's Water Shortage Response Plan. As set out in the Plan, during long, dry periods, it may become necessary to further restrict watering. Details will be available here, as well as through various media sources.


Vegetable and Flower Garden Watering

Sprinkling restrictions do not affect vegetable and flower garden watering. You may water your garden as often as needed, but use a watering can or a hose with a spring-loaded, shut-off nozzle to reduce water waste.
