It’s Canada Water Week! In 2014 our peak day demand (the day all City residents consumed the most water) was almost four million litres more than the average da...y demand for the year. High water usage is tied closely to the weather and how much outdoor watering you do. Keep in mind your lawn only needs 2.5 cm of water a week to grow. To make it simple, turn a Frisbee upside down while you water your yard. Once it’s full, you are done for the week! Try watering in the early morning or late evening to prevent evaporation.
