Remember, just because it is your day to water, that does not mean that you must water your lawn. Check first.
Residents are reminded that watering restrictions are in effect May 1 through October 1.
Sprinkling is permitted between the hours of 6:00am and 9:00am and 6:00pm and 9:00pm.
Properties with even numbered civic addresses may water on even numbered days. Properties with odd numbered civic addresses may water on odd numbered days.
Properties with automatic sprinkling systems may water between the hours of 12:00am and 6:00am on their assigned watering days provided that sprinkling does not exceed 6 hours in any 24 hour period. Property owners are encouraged to ensure that automatic sprinkling systems are programmed appropriately in order to conserve water – there have been a number of cases where the programming was overwatering lawns and driving up consumption.
Hand-watering is permitted providing a hand-held container or hose with a shutoff device is utilized.
These restrictions apply to all properties within the City of Enderby or connected to the City of Enderby water system with the exception of nurseries, farms, sports fields or public parks.

2015 is upon us and it’s looking to be an incredible year. Your City Councillors and staff have been working hard on their portfolios and will be ready to present this year’s priorities for the March 1st deadline that we have set. This will coincide with the budget process that is underway and will continue to match projects with the funds that are available.
The Mayor and the Councillors that you elected in November of 2014 are all committed to working on your behalf to move the City of Enderby into the future. We see a community that will allow everyone to chase their dreams and live in a place that is affordable and provide the services that you tell us you need.
We look forward to the challenges and know that with open communication with citizens and community groups from our amazing volunteers to the business community, the schools, the recreation services, seniors programs and always improving healthcare system we can have a community that we will continue to be very proud of. This will lead to others moving to our city and will help us to create more jobs and opportunities.
It is a complete honour to be the Mayor of such an amazing City. We live in a very beautiful part of the world and the strength of our region will continue to make this a very desirable place to Live Visit and Play. Tell your friends and your family. Enderby is the place to be. A great place to raise a family or retire with the services you need.
