Watering Restrictions

This spring and summer, the Town of Golden is reminding residents to be mindful of water usage and to follow the Town's watering restrictions. Golden's water use is at its highest during this time, and lawn watering is a large contributor to increased use.

Watering restrictions are put in place through a local bylaw to make sure residents water their lawns at appropriate times to lessen the impact on the local water supply during peak times.


What days can you water?

  • Odd numbered addresses are to water on odd days
  • Even numbered addresses are to water on even days.

Only water during these times on your designated days:

  • In the morning between 4 and 10 a.m.
  • In the evening between 7 and 10 p.m.

Automatic irrigation systems on a timer should be set to water between midnight and 6 a.m. on the appropriate day, as mentioned above.

Hand watering of plants using a hose with a working spring-loaded shut-off nozzle or a hand-held container is allowed at any time.
