Regional Water Conservation Order in Effect

Regional Water Conservation Order in Effect

Be Wise with Your Water Use This Summer

With this summer’s warm and dry weather, residents are reminded to limit their use of water outdoors to protect the water supply.

The regional water supply servicing the municipalities of St. John’s, Conception Bay South, Paradise, Mount Pearl, and Portugal Cove-St. Philip’s is experiencing a higher than usual demand.

The public is reminded of the Water Conservation Order to promote wise water use in the region. Residents are asked to follow the Order so water demand can be addressed before it reaches a critical point and further actions are needed.

According to the Water Conservation Order, lawn and garden watering is restricted to the hours between 6:00 a.m. and 8:00 a.m. and 8:00 p.m. and 10:00 p.m. in accordance with the following schedule:

  • Even street civic numbers between 6 a.m. and 8 a.m. and 8 p.m. and 10 p.m. on Wednesdays and Saturdays.
  • Odd street civic numbers between 6 a.m. and 8 a.m. on Wednesdays and Sundays and between 8 p.m. and 10 p.m. Wednesdays and Fridays.
  • Hand watering is permitted at any time.
  • You may also wash your car or windows provided you use a hose with a shut-off nozzle.

All municipalities will be actively enforcing the Water Conservation Order and the cooperation of residents is appreciated.
