The Town of Sylvan Lake on Tuesday morning announced the implementation of outdoor water usage restrictions effective immediately.
“Hand watering of plants and/or new sod before noon or after 7 p.m. is the only exception. Sprinklers are not permitted at any time,” read a Town media release.
Given the recent dry weather, having the restrictions in place will ensure adequate access to water for town residents and businesses. It will also ensure the availability of water in the event of an emergency.
Up-to-date information on the restrictions is available on the Town of Sylvan Lake Facebook page.
