Lifting of ban on lawn watering

The City of Sainte-Thérèse announced the lifting of the ban on mechanical and automatic watering for its entire territory, as well as for the cities of Boisbriand, Blainville and Mirabel.
Despite this lifting of the watering ban, it is essential for residents to moderate their drinking water consumption and respect the new watering schedule in force.
In summer, watering lawns and landscaping significantly increases the demand for drinking water. This is why last April, the cities of Blainville, Boisbriand, Mirabel and Sainte-Thérèse along with a plethora of other North Shore cities, changed their regulations and harmonized watering schedules in order to better distribute this significant consumption of drinking water.
It is important to note that a permit is always necessary for watering newly peated or seeded lawns. Citizens can consult their city’s website to comply with current regulations.
