NEWS RELEASE: Lawn sprinkling ban in place.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE - July 8, 2024

Due to the hot weather, starting Monday, July 8, the City of Terrace is implementing stage 3 water restrictions. Under these restrictions, throughout the City:

  • Sprinkling is NOT permitted.
  • Watering by HANDHELD HOSE with a CONTROLLED NOZZLE is permitted for flowers, plants and shrubs.
  • Hot tub or pool TOP-UPS ONLY are permitted.
  • New house with first-time lawn of seed or turf can apply for a permit.
  • No watering of non-sport green spaces within the City.
  • Reduced watering of sports field.

These restrictions help ensure adequate water supply is available for firefighting purposes. This is of vital importance during forest fire season. Under the City of Terrace Water Distribution and Sale Bylaw No. 1326-1993, violations may result in fines.

The City extends a big thank you to residents for cooperating.

The current restrictions will remain in effect until weather conditions are more consistently wet and cool. Further updates will be provided as soon as conditions allow adjustments in these restrictions.
