Odd/even yard watering in effect in Spruce Grove

Dry, hot weather leads to water shortage

The dry, hot weather experienced in the region has led to water demand exceed supply. As a result, Spruce Grove residents are being asked to follow odd/even yard watering until further notice.

Residents with:

  • Even-numbered addresses may water on even numbered days only.
  • Odd-numbered addresses may water on odd numbered days only.

The most optimal times to water your yard is during the morning or early evening hours (ie. 6 - 10 a.m. or 7 – 11 p.m.).

This measure is necessary in order to ensure that water supply from reservoirs has a chance to replenish to acceptable levels.

In addition to the odd/even yard watering, the City has also implemented water-saving measures with its operations including the temporary closure of the splash pad at Central Park.

Water supplies will be monitored on a daily basis. If conditions do not improve, other restrictions may be put in place. Improved weather conditions and increasing reservoir levels may allow for restrictions to be relaxed.
