Watering Restrictions in Dorval


The City of Dorval requests the cooperation of its citizens to conserve water during the summer. For that purpose, watering restrictions will be in effect in the municipality, from June 1 to September 1, 2014, as follows:

• Watering is prohibited from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. everywhere.
• Watering is, however, allowed from 7 p.m. to 7 a.m., as follows:
• Even civic numbers: Monday, Wednesday, and Friday
• Odd civic numbers: Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday

• Watering by hand of gardens, flowers, trees, and shrubs, using a hose fitted with a self-closing nozzle, is permitted at all times.

• Watering a newly installed lawn is permitted daily during the two consecutive weeks following its installation, with a permit obtained, free of charge, from the Urban Planning Department (60 Martin Avenue).

• A permit will be issued to residents along a street where new sod has been laid following municipal work.

• Watering on Sunday is prohibited.

• Repeated washing of driveways, sidewalks, patios, and exterior walls of buildings is prohibited. It is, however, authorized once a year only, between January 1 and June 1.

• Filling of pools is prohibited between 7 a.m. and 7 p.m.

• Watering on sidewalks, curbs, and driveways with sprinklers or automatic watering systems is prohibited.

• An automatic sprinkler system must be equipped, among other things, with the following devices:
1) A programmable timer that allows the system to be programmed according to the days and times

2) An automatic humidity sensor or an automatic shut-off device that, in case of rain, will suspend watering operations when precipitation suffices or when the humidity level in the soil is sufficient

• Washing of cars is permitted only with the use of a garden hose equipped with a self-closing nozzle. The use of a bucket is recommended to reduce water consumption.

Those who contravene these restrictions could receive a fine of up to $600 in a residential area and a fine of up to $2,000 in a commercial area.
