How Can You Help?

Tips for Water Conservation

  1. Water your lawn only when it needs it. A good way to see if your lawn needs watering is to step on the grass. If it springs back up when you move, it doesn't need water. If it stays flat, fetch the sprinkler.
  2. Deep-soak your lawn. When you do water, do it enough for the moisture to soak down to the roots where it will do the most good.
  3. Put a layer of mulch around trees and plants. Mulch will slow evaporation of moisture and discourage weeds.
  4. Use a broom, not a hose, to clean driveways and sidewalks.
  5. Don't run the hose while washing your car. Clean the car with a pail of soapy water. Use the hose only to rinse it off.
  6. Advise your children not to play with the hose and sprinklers. Consider filling up a pool.
  7. Check for leaks in pipes, hoses, faucets and couplings. Leaks outside the house may not seem as bad, since they are not as visible. But they can be just as wasteful as a leak inside.

Restrictions for all water systems take effect May 1st to October 1st.  For more information, please contact the Cariboo Regional District Manager of Environmental Services at 250-392-3351 or Toll Free 1-800-665-1636.
