Watering Ban Led to Dozens of Warnings
Prince George, B.C. – The watering ban that was in place last week in Prince George saw numerous property owners being warned for violations.
The City says the total number of warnings issued during the ban was 80. Bylaw enforcement is reviewing one particular case, which may result in a fine.
The ban , which was in place from noon Monday to midnight Friday, was to ensure there would be significant water pressure throughout the City while crews installed the final piece of a line between two major wells in the city.
During the ban, residents were not to be using sprinklers or irrigation systems, but could continue to water gardens or lawns provided they were using a hand held device.
The “loop” was being put in place so that in the event there was an issue with the well or the equipment , water could continue to be provided by switching to the other well.
The $3 million dollar project took a year to complete.
