The City of White Rock will be implementing new watering restrictions starting on May 1, 2022 to align with Metro Vancouver’s lawn watering regulations. Lawn watering is now permitted one day per week for all White Rock properties. Residents and businesses must follow the Stage 1 watering restrictions as below.

Residential lawn watering regulations:
• Even-numbered addresses on Saturdays
• Odd-numbered addresses on Sundays
• Automatic watering is allowed 5 a.m. to 7 a.m.
• Manual watering is allowed 6 a.m. to 9 a.m.

Note: multi-family dwellings are considered even or odd according to the building number, not the unit number.
Watering trees, shrubs and flowers is permitted any day from 5 a.m. to 9 a.m. if using a sprinkler, or any time if hand watering or using drip irrigation. All hoses must have an automatic shut-off device. Edible plants are exempt from regulations

When washing a boat or vehicle, water hoses must be equipped with an automatic shut-off device.


Non-residential lawn watering regulations:
• Even-numbered addresses on Mondays
• Odd-numbered addresses on Tuesdays
• Automatic watering is allowed 4 a.m. to 6 a.m.
• Manual watering is allowed 6 a.m. to 9 a.m.

Watering trees, shrubs and flowers is permitted any day from 4 a.m. to 9 a.m. if using a sprinkler, or any time if hand watering or using drip irrigation. All hoses must have an automatic shut-off device. Edible plants are exempt from regulations.


Outdoor water restrictions are automatically implemented each year from May 1 to October 15 to support and promote sustainable water practices. Our water use can increase by 50% in summer and early fall, largely due to lawn watering.
