There will be water restrictions in Bradford West Gwillimbury and Innisfil this week during the final shutdown for upgrades to the Innisfil Lakeshore Water Treatment Plant.
In BWG, “non-essential” lawn watering and car washing will be prohibited on Aug. 9 from 7 a.m. to 11:59 p.m., according to Caleigh Clubine, community relations officer with the Town of BWG.
Lawn watering for newly-laid sod and seed are the only exceptions.
In Innisfil, watering lawns and gardens, and washing vehicles, sidewalks, patios, decks, windows and driveways is not permitted between Aug. 9 at 5 a.m. and Aug. 10 at 1 a.m.
How can you conserve water?
- Take a short shower instead of a full bath
- Fill a basin or pan with water to wash fruits and vegetables
- Turn the tap water off while brushing your teeth, shaving, or washing your face
- Skip laundry today and do it tomorrow when you have a full load
