With increased demands on water supplies, there’s a greater focus on conserving water. Water can no longer be considered a limitless resource. For most of the year, Abbotsford receives enough rain to keep gardens adequately watered.However, the summer months are usually dry, and our summer water use can increase significantly. Inefficient watering practices and planting gardens that are not suitable for our climate are contributing factors to the large amount of water used in the summer. Water Restrictions are in effect from May 1 – September 30, every year in order to ensure there is reliable quantity of water available, during the summer.
