Metro Vancouver’s Stage 1 Water Shortage Response Plan will be put in effect as of May 15, 2017. The restrictions apply to all residents and business in the region, including UBC. The region-wide watering regulations are an effective way to help us conserve our drinking water supply.
Lawn Watering Regulations are in effect May 15 to October 15, 2017
RESIDENTIAL LAWN WATERING ALLOWED:
Even-numbered addresses Monday, Wednesday, Saturday mornings 4 am to 9 am
Odd-numbered addresses Tuesday, Thursday, Sunday mornings 4 am to 9 am
NON-RESIDENTIAL LAWN WATERING ALLOWED:

In addition to lawn watering regulations, there are other water use restrictions when Stage 1 of the Water Shortage Response Plan is active.
