St. John's implements water conservation order


The City of St. John's has implemented a water conservation order due to the hot and dry weather being experienced this summer.


This order applies to the municipalities of St. John’s, Paradise, Mount Pearl, and Portugal Cove-St. Philip's.


Residents are reminded to limit their use of water outdoors to protect the water supply. The regional water supply is experiencing a higher than usual demand.


Under the order lawn watering is only permitted at the following times:

  • Even street numbers, between 6 and 8 a.m., and 8 and 10 p.m., Tuesdays and Saturdays

  • Odd street numbers, between 6 and 8 a.m., and 8 and 10 p.m., Thursdays and Sundays

Hand watering of lawns and gardens is permitted at any time. Residents with a new lawn may water it between 6 and 8 a.m., and 8 and 10 p.m. every day for a period of 60 days following installation.


Residents can wash cars or windows provided it is done with a hose with a shut-off nozzle.
