WATER CONSERVATION REMINDER: The Hamilton Department of Public Works would like to remind residents that we have an annual Outdoor Water Use By-Law that does not allow mechanical watering of lawns between the hours of 8:00 a.m. and 8:00 p.m. from May 1st to September 30th of each year. The most wasteful act of water use is over watering your lawn at night or watering during the heat of the day.  Up to 80% of the water used during the day is evaporated which means 80 cents on every dollar you spend watering is wasted along with the same outcome with over-watering at night.
