As summer moves along, the village of Harrison Hot Springs’ water restrictions have once again come into effect.
From June 1 to Sept. 30, the village asks residents to “be water wise” and conserve water particularly while watering lawns. This ensures the village has enough water to handle any fire protection and household needs.
Those with even-numbered addresses can water their lawns on Tuesday and Saturday while those with odd-numbered addresses can water on Wednesday and Sunday. Watering times is between 5 a.m. and 8 p.m. and 7 p.m. and 10 p.m.
Watering lawns is considered to be non-essential water use; other examples include watering gardens and washing vehicles and boats.
The water schedule is part of the village’s Municipal Water Conservation Plan, which encourages a number of water-conserving practices. These include:
Use a spring-loaded nozzle for watering to better control water flow and usage
Invest in water-conserving shower heads, aerators on bathroom taps and consider installing toilets that are water-conserving certified
Turn off water while shaving, brushing teeth and washing dishes
Only run your dishwasher and washing machine when you have full loads
Any questions can be directed to the village staff at 604-796-2171.
