Voluntary Odd-Even Watering Program

Morinville encourages residents and businesses to adopt an odd/even watering schedule. This supports conservation and assists with the spring/summer high water demand.

On even days of the month, residents of even-numbered addresses can water outside.

Watering tips


  • Water in the early morning between 6 a.m. and 10 a.m.
  • Do not water when it is windy.
  • Soaking your lawn once per week produces a healthier lawn than watering several times a week.
  • Water only when needed, to a maximum of 1 hour a week, or 2.5 centimeters (1 inch) less if it rains. You can measure this by placing a container on your lawn while watering. When the water level reaches 2.5 centimeters (1 inch) you can shut off the sprinklers. This helps produce a deeper root system, which is less likely to be damaged by drought.
  • Place your sprinkler so water lands on the lawn or garden, not on paved areas.

Trees and shrubs

  • When watering trees and large shrubs, water around the drip-line of the tree (area below the branches where water drips naturally from leaves) not directly at the trunk.
