Avoiding Water Woes With An Even/Odd Lawn Watering Restriction

Outdoor Watering Restriction To Prevent Potential Drinking Water Shortage

Watering the lawn might involve a tiny bit of number crunching, thanks to the warmer weather. To make sure residents don’t run short of water, the City of Barrie is taking steps to ensure there’s an adequate amount of potable water with some outdoor watering restrictions.

The city is asking residents in even-numbered houses to water the lawn on even-numbered days, while odd-numbered residents get to do so on odd days. For example, A person living at 9 Anywhere Street should water their lawn today, July 9th. Someone living across the street at 8 Anywhere St. can do so tomorrow.
