Castlegar Watering Restrictions

309607073_280a6668c7_m Summer is here again, and it’s getting hot!

The City has again implemented watering restrictions to ensure that the City’s supply of treated water is not depleted during the peak summer watering times.

Effective June 15 to September 15, 2008 sprinkling and car washing is permitted between the hours of:

5:00 A.M. TO 11:00 A.M. AND 5:00 P.M. TO 11:00 P.M.

Water Sprinkling is Restricted to Every Second Day :

  • residents at "odd number" addresses water on "odd number" calendar days, and
  • residents at "even number" addresses water on "even number" calendar days.

This is a generous amount of time even if you can only water in the morning or evening rather than both. If you have an automatic sprinkler system that cannot do odd/even of the month, you are permitted to water every second day. Find out more here.

How often do you water your lawn and gardens?
