Guelph strikes to Degree 1 yellow water restrictions – Guelph
The City of Guelph says it’s changing its watering restrictions Friday, moving to Level 1 yellow from Level 0 blue as part of the Outside Water Use Program.
The move is in response to the recent hot, dry weather the city has been experiencing.
At Level 1 yellow, lawn watering is restricted to 7 to 9 am and 7 to 9 pm on odd or even calendar dates by address number.
That means odd-numbered houses can water on odd-numbered dates, and even-numbered houses on even dates.
The city says its outside water use program is actively enforced through its bylaw officers.

They will issue a fine or court summons for each observed infraction; however, they will often use an education-first approach with violators.
