Watering Restrictions Start May 1
Stage 1 watering restrictions are in effect May 1 to October 15, regardless of weather. These restrictions allow help prepare for potential water shortages during the warmer months. The intent is for watering to take place in the early morning hours, when demand is low and evaporation is minimal. The policy affects both residential and non-residential areas. Watering outside the allowed times requires a permit. Visit newwestcity.ca/lawnwatering for details on when you’re permitted to water your lawn and garden, and how to apply for a permit.
