Water Restrictions

The municipality puts seasonal outdoor water use restrictions in place each year from June 1st to October 1st. These restrictions help promote water conservation in our municipality. 

To balance peak demand, Bluewater asks you to only water your lawn, flower or vegetable gardens on the following days:

  • Odd numbered houses may water from 7 p.m. to 10 p.m. on odd numbered days.
  • Even numbered houses may water from 7 p.m. to 10 p.m. on even numbered days.

The last digit of your house or 911 number determines if your property is odd or even. If you need an exemption because of newly planted sod, seed, trees or shrubs contact the utilities clerk at 519-236-4351 ext. 231.


The by-law enforcement officer, Manager of Public Works or their designates may enforce outdoor water use restrictions. 

  • The fine for the first offence is $100.00.
  • The fine for the second offence is $200.00.

Our water use restrictions by-law is available on request from the municipality.
