Cumberland remains on Stage 1 water restrictions on watering lawns with a sprinkler. Water levels in the surface water reservoirs are dropping but are currently at sufficient levels for this time of year.
Residents are asked to follow stage 1 restrictions and water wisely to ensure sufficient water supply through the end of summer and fall and to make sure we have sufficient water supply for firefighting purposes. Find out when, what and how you can water during Stage 1 restrictions.
The best time to water is early in the morning or in the evening to help conserve soil moisture. Using mulch in your garden and top dressing your lawn with organics will also help keep the moisture in the soil so you can water less. Watering your garden and trees deeply and less frequently helps to develop deep root systems.
