The annual restrictions are in place between May 15 and September 30

The annual City of Quesnel sprinkling or irrigation restrictions for all properties connected to the City water system within the City limits have started as of May 15 and will run until September 30.

Residents may use sprinklers or irrogate their properties only between the hours of 6 am and 10 am and from 7 pm to 11 pm. The usage schedule for properties is as follows:

  • On even-numbered calendar days, even numbered properties may sprinkle or irrigate;
  • On odd-numbered calendar days, odd numbered properties may sprinkle or irrigate;

For example:

  • Property Address: 694 is an even-numbered property
  • Property address: 685 is an odd-numbered property

“These restrictions help to reduce peaks in water use, reducing the high demands on our water delivery system at any given time. This allows the system to keep up with the demands for clean drinking water, irrigation and commercial use, while also being able to store water for future use (i.e., in case of local fires).” States a release from the City of Quesnel.
