The City of Fort Saskatchewan is trying to save water in the hot and dry weather.
 
Residents are being encouraged to water their lawns on an odd/even schedule.
 
The schedule promotes that if your house address ends in an even number water on the even calendar days. Water on odd days if your house number is odd.
 
“It makes sure that not everyone is watering their lawns all at once,” said Bradley McDonald, the infrastructure strategy manager with the city. “It helps divide the water demand up a bit and it helps to ensure the water tanks stay full.”
 
The odd/even watering schedule is not mandatory, but strongly encouraged.
 
“The bylaw does allow us to put water bans in place so if we reach a critical level in storage then we would just say no lawn watering period.”
