Water wisely. Do you know which day is your watering day?1 min readReading Time: < 1 minute
Hot weather has arrived! Should you water the grass? Before you grab the hose, refresh yourself on the Region of Waterloo’s Conservation By-law.
Every year, the by-law’s watering rules are in effect from May 31 to Sept. 30. Everyone gets one day per week to water lawns. Residents can water gardens or wash the car with a hose every other day. Your watering day is based on the last digit of your property address. And there are watering hours too: morning (5:30 a.m. to 10 a.m.) or evening (7 p.m. to 11 p.m.).

Did you know? Before the by-law, outdoor watering in the summer could spike the Region’s water demand up by 50 per cent. These rules help lower daily water use and spread out high demand to avoid straining the groundwater supply and our water distribution system.
