Waterring By-Law Now in Effect

The City of Greater Sudbury’s outdoor watering by-law is now in effect. Home addresses that end with an odd number – 1, 3, 5, 7 or 9 – are permitted to water lawns, gardens, trees and shrubs on odd-numbered dates of the month. Home addresses that end with an even number – 0, 2, 4, 6 or 8 – are permitted to water lawns, gardens, trees and shrubs on even-numbered dates of the month.

City of Greater Sudbury By-law Enforcement Officers will be watching for violations of the Outdoor Watering By-law. First time violations could result in a $300 ticket. Repeat violations could lead to charges under the Provincial Offences Act and a fine of up to $5,000.

Widespread non-compliance with the Odd-Even Outdoor Watering By-law, or a period of extended drought, could result in water shortages that will necessitate a total ban on outdoor watering.
