KELOWNA - The City of Kelowna is reminding water utility customers that the odd/even watering restrictions are in place until the end of September.

As the days become shorter and temperatures drop leading into the fall season, the City also encourages residents to reduce the watering time on their irrigation timers.

This will save both water and money.

The amount of water required for a lawn in September is only about 60 per cent of what is required during the peak irrigation month of July.

Odd/even watering restrictions allow properties with odd number addresses to water lawns and yards on odd calendar days and those with even number addresses to water on even calendar days.

Automatic underground irrigation systems may run between midnight and 6 a.m.

Manual sprinklers and watering by hose (hand watering) can occur between 6 a.m. and 11 a.m. or 6 p.m. and midnight on the scheduled odd/even day.

These outdoor watering restrictions will be in place until Sept. 30 after which the City will re-evaluate the need for restrictions.
