Stop soaking your lawn in Comox

Soakers will be fined

  • Aug. 10, 2015 8:00 p.m.

The Town of Comox advises residents that soaker and weeper hoses are prohibited under Stage 3 water restrictions because of the amount of water they use. A single length of soaker hose can draw over 400 litres of water per hour (over 10,000 litres per day if people leave them running).

Town bylaw officers have recently encountered people who are still using these watering devices, despite outdoor water use being curtailed under Stage 3 restrictions. Use of these devices at any time during Stage 3 can result in a bylaw violation ticket.
