Water-sprinkling restrictions still in effect for Terrace

The City of Terrace is reminding residents that despite cooler temperatures, water sprinkler restrictions that went into effect July 31 are still in place.

Residents living at odd-numbered house addresses can water their gardens on odd-numbered days, while residents at even-numbered addresses can water on even numbered days. Sprinklers can only be turned on between 5 a.m. to 10 a.m..

The City of Terrace says the restrictions are required to ensure that adequate water supply is available for firefighting purposes, and to keep the costs of delivering water to a minimum.

While water sprinkling hours are restricted to the morning, hand sprinkling of flowers and shrubs with a controlled nozzle is allowed at any time.

The print edition of the Terrace Standard on Aug. 2 reported incorrect information on the water sprinkling restrictions. The information has been corrected above.
