Lawn watering restrictions are now in place across Chatham-Kent.
The Chatham-Kent Public Utilities Commission (PUC) implemented the restrictions for all its customers, both residential and commercial, on municipal water.
Customers with odd numbered addresses will be allowed to water their lawns on odd numbered days.
Customers with even numbered addresses will be allowed to water their lawns on even numbered days.
PUC officials said there will be a two-month grace period for newly sodded lawns.
“With the extended hot dry weather that this region has been experiencing, lawn watering has placed extra demands on all of our water treatment plants” PUC general manager Tim Sunderland said in a media release.
The PUC may need to implement further restrictions if the water plants do not see any relief.
