“In the summertime, water use can increase by up to 50 per cent, much of which is from lawn watering,” said Chris Combe with the Township’s sustainability department.
“Limiting the days and times lawns may be watered helps conserve our shared water supply and prevents potential shortages if the region experiences an extended dry spell,” he added.
Under current Stage 1, residents with even street addresses can water their lawns between 4 to 9 a.m. on Wednesdays and Saturdays. Those in odd numbered properties can water during the same hours on Thursday and Sunday mornings.
In the case of multi-unit complexes, the complex address, not unit number, determines watering days.
Owners of non-residential properties with even addresses can water lawns from 1 to 6 a.m. on Mondays, and those with odd addresses on Tuesdays. All non-residential addresses can water lawns on Fridays from 4 to 9 a.m.
