Watering Restrictions

Stage III

REDUCED HOURS

Effective August 23, 2017 – Alternate Day watering Restrictions are in force pursuant to the City of Rossland Water Service Bylaw #2173. The water reservoirs have dropped well below full capacity due to the unusually dry season and remarkably low creek levels.

Please obey the following restrictions:

  • For odd numbered premises, watering is permitted only on odd numbered days in the morning between the hours of 7:00 a.m. to 9:00 a.m. and in the evening between 7:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. This includes manual and automatic watering systems.

  • For even numbered premises, watering is permitted only on even numbered days in the morning between the hours of 7:00 a.m. to 9:00 a.m. and in the evening between 7:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. This includes manual and automatic watering systems.

  • Water must not spray onto sidewalks, driveways or roads.
