With no rain in sight and temperatures rising, it’s a good thing Metro Vancouver’s water supply is holding up.
Glenn Bohn with the regional district says reservoir levels are at about 90% — with watering restrictions in place to help keep it that way.
But, only being able to water your lawn in the morning during the summer doesn’t mean you can’t break out the sprinkler to help your kids to keep cool.
“These are restrictions for lawns only. You are welcome to set up the sprinkler, and aim it a bit to the kids and the garden, people are still welcome to use this water for vegetables and flowers.”
Bohn says the restrictions conserve high quality drinking water for better uses as the summer heats up.
