Due to excessive use of lawn watering, the following guidelines will be implemented as of Monday, June 29, 2015. These guidelines follow the RDEK (Regional District of East Kootenay) and Invermere standards.

Having set watering hours conserves water, creates a balance in the system demand and controls costs. Lawn experts say about one inch of water per week (including precipitation) is adequate for maintaining a healthy lawn.

EVEN numbered houses may water on Tuesdays, Thursday and Sundays. ODD numbered houses may water on Mondays, Wednesdays and Saturdays

“NO WATERING” is allowed on Fridays to allow the reservoir to replenish.

Watering Times Automatic Sprinklers: 3:00 am to 8:00 am

Manual Sprinklers: Morning 6:00 am to 10:00 am Evening 7:00 pm to 11:00 pm

Exceptions can be granted for newly seeded or sodded lawns. Watering with a hand held spring loaded nozzle or with a hand held container is allowed.

If you have any questions, please email[mailto:] or call 250.342.5215.

Thank you for cooperating, Dave Rae
