Metro Vancouver watering restrictions start May 15

Despite the wet weather, lawns can only be watered three times a week

While it might not look like summer is getting closer, Metro Vancouver water restrictions are going into effect on Monday.

The regional district institutes stage one water restrictions starting on May 15 each year no matter what the weather is like.

“A wet spring and a snowy winter isn’t an excuse to waste our drinking water in Metro Vancouver,” said Darrell Mussatto, Chair of Metro Vancouver’s Utilities Committee. “These regulations are in place to help residents develop long-term habits for drier years.”

The water restrictions, effective from May 15 to October 15, are as follows:

Residential lawn watering allowed:

Even-numbered addresses Monday, Wednesday, Saturday mornings 4 a.m. to 9 a.m.
