Lawn sprinkling ban means Metro residents will water in morning only

Metro Vancouver’s summer lawn sprinkling ban during evenings comes into effect today (June 1). Sprinkling is only permitted for even-numbered addresses Monday, Wednesday and Saturday between 4 a.m. and 9 a.m., and those hours on Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday for odd-numbered addresses. Although regulations allow up to three times a week, Metro Vancouver encourages residents to avoid watering.
