Although lawn watering is permitted in both Langley Township and City

Stage 1 watering restrictions in effect throughout Township and City

Lawn sprinkling hours are limited to early morning, but municipalities are urging residents to let their grass 'go golden'

Stage 1 water restrictions which regulate lawn sprinkling days and hours are now in effect in Langley Township.

Lawn sprinkling is only allowed from 4 a.m. to 9 a.m. on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Saturdays for homes with even numbered addresses and 4 a.m. to 9 a.m. on Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Sundays for homes with odd numbered addresses.

Non-residential properties with even numbered addresses can sprinkle their lawns Mondays and Wednesdays from 1 a.m. to 6 a.m. with odd numbered addresses on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 1 a.m. to 6 a.m.

All non-residential addresses can sprinkle lawns on Fridays from 4 a.m. to 9 a.m.

“Your lawn only requires one hour or one inch of watering a week to stay healthy,” said Meaghan Norton Daniel of the Township’s Water Resources and Environment Department.

“Alternatively, residents may choose to ‘go golden’ and let their lawn go dormant for the summer.”

“All efforts that support water conservation are important to ensure we maintain adequate resources for drinking and emergency use, and ultimately avoid further levels of restriction,” she added.

Water usage doubles during the warm season.

In Aldergrove, Gloucester, and Salmon River Uplands, which currently rely solely on groundwater drawn from local aquifers, the Township is urging restraint, urging properties with private wells to observe the water restrictions.

Even numbered non-residential addresses may sprinkle lawns on Mondays or Wednesdays between 1 a.m. and 6 a.m., or Fridays between 4 a.m. and 9 a.m.

Odd numbered non-residential addresses may sprinkle lawns on Tuesdays or Thursdays between 1 a.m. and 6 a.m. or Fridays between 4 a.m. and 9 a.m.
