Last week, the City of Hamilton issued a ban on all non-essential outdoor water use across all parts of Hamilton.
Effective immediately, this ban has been lifted and residents are permitted to resume non-essential water use outdoors, including watering lawns, using sprinklers, filling large pools and washing cars.
The City thanks residents for their cooperation in limiting their water use and helping to ensure the water supply in Hamilton was not interrupted. Thanks to the efforts of residents in helping to conserve water, the City was able to lift the ban a few days ahead of schedule.
My old retired neighbours in their large house with their manicured lawn seemed determined to use as much water as possible the last few days. Good thing not all Hamiltonians are like them…
