New Lawn Sprinkling Regulations

Metro Vancouver recently revised the lawn sprinkling regulations, which are in effect annually from June 1 to September 30.  The intent is for watering to take place in the early morning hours, when demand is low and evaporation is minimal.  The new policy affects both residential and non‑residential areas, and the permitted watering hours are summarized below:
