The City of Charlottetown's Water and Sewer Utility Department reminds customers that seasonal water use restrictions are in place as of today (Monday, June 1). The restrictions will remain in effect until September 30, 2015.
The City’s seasonal water restrictions are mandatory and allow for outdoor watering only in the early morning and evening hours. The hosing off of driveways and other hard surfaces is prohibited under the seasonal restrictions.
The Winter River watershed is most vulnerable to water extraction during the summer and it is important for all residents to follow the mandatory water restrictions to ease the strain on the watershed during the drier months.
The City asks that customers use water carefully, both indoors and outdoors, in order to preserve and protect water supplies. If conditions remain dry and the water extraction rates are high, the Utility will implement water shortage restrictions that prohibit all lawn watering and limit car washing to once per week.
