Water management: it’s everybody’s business!
Overconsumption of the outdoor use of water distributed by the Town’s aqueduct networks
SAINT-LAZARE (Québec), Tuesday, July 30, 2019 - Over the past several days, resident’s drinking water consumption has peaked.
Because of the lack of rain and the low level of the groundwater, some municipalities have started decreeing complete watering bans.
To avoid having to decree a ban, the Town wishes to remind residents how important it is to respect the outdoor use of the water distributed by the aqueduct networks (By-Law 667) currently in effect. The Town has already put in place staff to increase its patrols in order to ensure that residents respect the watering schedules and regulations. Findings will be issued and fines of up to $2,000 could be give to repeat offenders.
The City encourages residents to adopt more ecological and economical watering habits every day, especially in the summer.
