Lawn Watering Restrictions

The Public Works and By-Law Enforcement Departments are requesting residents be mindful of their outdoor water consumption until further notice.  The lack of precipitation has resulted in a substantial increase in demand for water from our water treatment plant.  It is vital that residents strictly adhere to the Lawn Watering By-law.

The By-law Department will be increasing enforcement and for those who choose not to follow the Town’s By-law the fine is $55.00.

This By-Law regulates the consumption and use of water from May 1st to September 30th, the following regulations apply:

  1. No person using the Town of Carleton Place water supply system shall water from more than one connection.    
  2. Residents occupying an even-numbered address may water on even-numbered calendar days only.    
  3. Residents occupying an odd-numbered address may water on odd-numbered calendar days only.    
  4. Watering is allowed only between the hours of 5:00 am and 9:00 am, and between the hours of 7:00 pm and 11:00 pm.    

Should you have any questions regarding the Lawn Watering By-law, please review the By-law in its entirety on our website or by contacting the By-law Department (613) 257-5688.
