Saint-Eustache announces “Time it so you don’t waste it” contest to save water.

On the initiative of the Environment Commission, the City of Saint-Eustache is launching a contest for its citizens to allow them to win one of 20 watering timers worth $ 50 each.

“With the entry into force of the new watering schedule, we thought of offering this competition to allow citizens who will win a timer, to plan their watering hours range in advance and not have to think about it anymore. Saving drinking water is an important issue and this competition is an awareness tool to help citizens participate in the collective effort so as not to waste our blue gold. In fact, there is a section on our website dedicated to ecological lawn care, which requires only a tiny amount of water each week, “said the Chair of the Environment Commission, municipal councilor Isabelle Lefebvre.

To participate in the contest, citizens are invited to register online and agree to respect the watering schedule in effect. The contest ends Sunday, August 23 at 23 h59.The draw will take place on August 25, 2020. The winners will be contacted by phone so that they can collect their prize at the town hall.

A powerful video prepared by young Eustachians

On the sidelines of the competition, the members of the Youth Commission have prepared a video which will soon be broadcast on social networks in order to invite citizens to participate in the competition, but above all to make them aware of the saving of drinking water.

“The young people of the Commission are very concerned with environmental issues. We have much to learn from them. By video, they challenge the owners and tenants who water their lawns. With a humorous tone, I am sure that they will attract the attention of Internet users. Watch the video on social networks! “, concluded the municipal councilor president of the Youth Commission, Mr. Marc Lamarre.
