Lawn and Garden Watering Restriction

Notice to Village of Canwood Residents

Lawn and Garden Watering Restriction starting June 28, 2021 Because of the hot conditions, there has been a drastic increase in water usage.

In order to curb excess usage and protect our water source, please be advised of the following when watering lawns, gardens and flowers:

The restriction assumes the middle of Main Street as the divide line

  • The East portion of town from Main Street and South Avenue will be allowed to water on Wednesdays, Fridays and Sundays.
  • The West portion of town from Main Street and 1st Street West (across the tracks) will be allowed to water on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays.
  • No one will be allowed to water on Mondays.
  • To promote saturation and avoid evaporation the best time to water your lawn is early in the morning or in the evening.

Some helpful hints when maintaining your lawn is to only water once a week with approximately an inch of water. This will drive grass roots deep into the soil in search of moisture and your lawn will be more drought-tolerant as a result. Overwatering is also bad for your lawn's health as it can contribute to the development of fungus and disease. You should also cut your lawn high at two-and-a- half to three inche
