As part of our ongoing water conservation measures, the region-wide sprinkling regulations begin May 15. The regulation allows outdoor watering within these hours: </p><p>Residential lawn sprinkling: </p><ul><li>Even-numbered addresses Monday, Wednesday, or Saturday mornings 4 am to 9 am </li><li>Odd-numbered addresses Tuesday, Thursday, or Sunday mornings 4 am to 9 am </li></ul><p>Non-residential lawn sprinkling: </p><ul><li>Even-numbered addresses Monday, or Wednesday mornings 1 am to 6 am </li><li>Odd-numbered addresses Tuesday, or Thursday mornings 1 am to 6 am </li><li>All non-residential addresses Friday mornings, 4 am to 9 am</li></ul><p>Non-residential addresses includes buildings with commercial addresses on the main floor and apartments above. All details are available <a href="/services/water/conservation-reservoir-levels/lawn-sprinkling/Pages/default.aspx" target="_blank">here</a>.</p> <p>Lawn sprinkling regulations help to manage water use throughout the summer, when there is low rainfall, and a high demand for outdoor watering. They also shift demand from evening to morning (which reduces daily spikes in water demand), and reduce operational costs to treat and distribute our water. The last two, which may seem less exciting, contribute a lot to the size and cost of our overall water storage and distribution system. Through reasonable conservation efforts, we can defer the financial and environmental costs of providing more storage. </p><p>Look for advertising, prompts and water conservation reminders throughout the region this summer.
