City asks residents to help conserve water in July July 5, 2016

July will typically be a dry summer month and several maintenance projects are scheduled in the City pertaining to water quantity and pressure. To help conserve water, the City of North Battleford reminds all residents to adhere to the Odd- Even Watering Schedule, especially in July.

Here is how the Odd-Even Watering works: Residents and businesses whose house numbers end in an even number, may water their yards on even-numbered days. If the house number ends in an odd number, residents and businesses may water on odd-numbered days.

Other tips to conserve water is to water plants with rain water collected in rain barrels and to water lawns and gardens in the evening, rather than during the day: Because it is cooler, the water will not evaporate as quickly and plants and grass will be able to soak up the water better.

The City has scheduled several maintenance projects that will take place in July: Inspection of the water tower, fire hydrant flushing, UPAR projects and the dredging in the North Saskatchewan River to address blockage of the intake structure at the F.E. Holliday Plant.
