Thanks to the rain that has fallen in recent days, Ville de Châteauguay is lifting the watering ban that has been in effect since June 16. 

Use of a watering system with oscillating water sprinklers or soaker hoses for lawns, flowers, gardens and kitchen gardens is once again permitted, in compliance with the watering by-law, that is, only between 9 p.m. and midnight, on even dates for even street addresses and on odd dates for odd street addresses. Manual watering, including with a hose, is also allowed.

For automatic watering systems, the watering time is only between 2 a.m. and 5 a.m. on Sundays, Tuesdays and Thursdays.

Residents are also permitted to fill pools on the usual schedule, that is, between 8 p.m. and 6 a.m., and wash cars, as long as water is used responsibly.

Although the ban has been lifted, the City recommends that residents use water from a rain recovery receptacle to water flowers and landscaping arrangements. This is a great initiative to save on drinking water and avoid the overuse of water for non-essential purposes.

Finally, residents who wish to install new sod on their property can do so by applying for a (free) 10-day permit by contacting the Division inspection et permis at 450-698-3260, and following the usual instructions.

Monitoring will continue over the entire territory to ensure that the watering schedules are upheld. Residents who do not comply may be ticketed.
