Water Conservation (Lawn Sprinkling)


  • Even numbered addresses will be permitted to water on Even numbered days  and Odd numbered address on Odd numbered days between the hours of 5:00am-9:00am and between the hours of 6:00pm-10:00pm

Although water supplies appear to be abundant, the costs associated with the delivery of water to your residence weighs heavily on our infrastructure system. By reducing the demand for water the District of Hope will reduce costs and extend the life of our pumps that pull the water out of the ground providing you with fresh consumable drinking water. Water conservation is our number one priority to ensure ample water not only for today’s customers but for generations of customers to come.

The District of Hope would like to thank all residents for their co-operation and understanding.

Please note that handwatering is permitted at any time, providing a person is holding the hose to water their garden, not leaving the hose unattended.
