The trustees and or its agents can and will turn off water at the curb stop to homes that are not complying with these regulations. The turn-off fee is $50.00, and the turn-on fee is $50.00. The combined amount ($100.00) will be required to be paid before the water is turned back on. Subsequent offences will be subject to additional fines.

The trustees would like to reduce the amount of water used on lawns, recognizing that we have a lot of grass in our community. The amount of water in Falls Creek will not keep it all green all year long with the kind of summer temperatures we are experiencing but a healthy lawn will stay green longer and rebound faster from browning. If you water according to the above regulations along with good lawn maintenance, aeration and fertilizing etc. your lawn should survive. We have a large water licence on Falls Creek for domestic use but we exceed that each year watering lawns. We will be monitoring the creek carefully this year and may change the sprinkling regulations when and if necessary and we will advise you at that time.

Thank you for your understanding and compliance.
