Residents are also reminded that Stage 1 water use restrictions are in effect. Stage I Restrictions consist of mandatory outdoor water conservation measures, where lawn watering is restricted to two times per week between the hours of 7 PM and 7 AM.
- Residents with ODD numbered addresses may water lawns on Tuesday and Friday.
- Residents with EVEN numbered addresses may water lawns on Wednesday and Saturday.
People making use of automated irrigation systems are asked to reprogram the systems to operate in accordance with these restrictions.
No lawn watering is permitted outside these hours. The Town Bylaws provides for fines of $50 for the first violation and $100 for each subsequent violation of these restrictions.
The restrictions have been implemented to ensure an adequate volume of water is available at all times for all purposes, including retaining an adequate volume in storage for fire fighting. Compliance with these restrictions may prevent the need for additional water conservation measures.
