Between May 1st and September 30th each year there are limitations on who can water and at what time.

Odd number houses may water on odd calendar days and even numbered houses may water on even numbered days.

Watering may occur between the hours of 5:00 a.m. and 9:00 a.m. and 7:00 p.m. and 11:00 p.m. each day and from only one connection. Midday is the hottest time of the day and the water is more likely to be wasted through evaporation when watering at this time. Watering from more than one connection simply uses too much water at once.

A significant amount of new grass or sod is exempted from these provisions for one week. Any other violations of the by-law may result in a fine.
