Watering Ban Reminder

Monday, June 12, 2017 @ 5:58 AM

Prince George, B.C. –  As of noon today,  irrigating lawns or  gardens in Prince George  is a no-no, unless you are using a  watering can or  hand held hose with nozzle.

The City’s ban kicks  in at noon and will last until Friday  evening,  as  construction on linking  two  main  wells   wraps up.

The  wells at Fish Trap Island and Wilson Park  are being linked to ensure there is adequate  water supply for the City in the event one well or pumphouse  develops problems.

The project has been underway for about a year,  and  installing the final connection  is the  last step.

The City may still  be  watering its own sport fields and  gardens  as they cannot be done by hand.    Properties with their own  wells are exempt from the  watering restrictions as they are not on the City Water system.

Those found in contravention of the ban,  could be facing a fine of $100.00



FIRST, bylaws has to get out of the office to write tickets and if the person they are ticketing gets loud or heaven forbid says a bad word they will probably be off on stress for months.

I think this is just a huge feel good action with no teeth.

couldn’t city hold off on watering to a week just like they expect everyone else too?
