Help conserve water this spring and summer (1) Print Article Font Size
tip-1-FB.jpgThis Spring and Summer, the Town of Golden is asking residents to be mindful of water usage and go to every effort to conserve.
 
Golden’s water use is at its highest in the spring and summer, and lawn watering is a large contributor to this increased use. By being conscientious about our watering, residents can lessen the impact on the local water supply and distribution system, and on the environment. It is important that we come together as a community and make every effort to conserve water in order to not put any excess stress on our water system.
 
Restrictions are put in place by bylaw so that people may water their lawns at appropriate times. Watering outside of the hottest part of the day results in more effective watering during this seasonal peak demand period.
 
Residents may only water from 4 a.m. to 10 a.m. and from 7 p.m. to 10 p.m. Odd numbered addresses are permitted to water on odd days while even numbered addresses may water on even days. Automatic irrigation systems should be set to water between 12 a.m. and 6 a.m.
 
It behooves everybody to be water conscious to reduce system pumping requirements and ensure that we maintain our reservoir storage.
 
Keep your eye on the newspaper, our website and our Facebook page over the summer as we will share tips and tricks for water conservation.
