Stage 4 water restrictions mean that you are not allowed to water anything...period. No watering lawns, flower beds, gardens. No Sunday afternoons washing your car in the driveway. No children playing in the sprinkler. Large fines for anyone doing any of the above, bylaw officers paroling the neighbourhoods. It felt.....scary.
Water is not a right. Water is a resource that must be conserved and protected. It can be gone in a heartbeat. We must remember this.
