City begins park irrigation schedule early

For immediate release: May 30, 2019 - 1:00pm

Due to the lack of precipitation and above average temperatures this week, park areas have begun to receive irrigation ahead of the City’s annual June 1 activation date. 

Based on the approved budget, City parks will receive up to 25mm (1 inch) of water per week until August 31, 2019.  If natural precipitation occurs, adjustments will be made. 

It is important to remember even with the budgeted regular watering program, some irrigated turf areas may remain brown until favourable weather conditions return.
