Water Stewardship
R2019-05-122

During the summer, citizens consume more water during the day than the Town produces, which has the effect of undermining the reserve. A temporary restriction must be instated to maintain an adequate level in the reserve, as a result, effective May 7th 2019, all outdoor use of potable water is restricted except for the following:

  • Manual watering of flowers and gardens (by-law 631, article 4.2)
  • The filling of swimming pools with a single hose is permitted between 9 p.m. and midnight (by-law 631, article 8.5.1)
  • The filling of a new swimming pool is allowed according to the conditions described in the swimming pool permit
  • Watering on a construction site (by-law 631, articles 8.3.1 and 8.3.3)
  • Watering for lawn treatment with biopesticides (nematodes) (by-law 631, article 8.6)
  • Washing a parking lot, driveway or patio in order to apply a protective coating (by-law 631, article 8.1.2)

Any person who contravenes to any provision of the present resolution will be liable to the fines outlined in section 13 of by-law 631.
