Due to hot and dry conditions and minor effects on the Fairy Creek water supply, effective immediately the City of Fernie has implemented the following Watering Restriction Program:
– Residential and Non-Residential Lawns water ODD-numbered addresses only on ODD-numbered calendar days and EVEN-numbered addresses only on EVEN-numbered calendar days. Lawn watering is restricted to 1 hour only between the hours of 7pm and 7am.
– At this time no watering restrictions have been placed on flower & vegetable gardens, decorative planters or trees and shrubs.
– Hosing private and commercial outdoor hard surfaces such as driveways and sidewalks is not permitted except for health & safety purposes or to prepare a surface for painting or similar treatment.
– Residential car or boat washing is permitted only with a hose equipped with a spring-loaded shut off.
The City of Fernie thanks you in advance for your cooperation. For more information please call City Hall at 250.423.6817.
