Neighbours wasting water on their lawns

Surrey – The Editor, I walk my dog many times a week in various areas and I have noticed numerous neighbours watering their lawns during the heat of the day (noon to 4 p.m.).

Don’t they know that doing so wastes a lot of water because most of it evaporates before it can be absorbed into the ground? Don’t they know that watering restrictions kicked in on June 1 and last until the end of September? Don’t they know that they could end up paying a fine of up to $300 for not complying?
