Exemption Certificate

Residents can apply for an Exemption Certificate to water new sod or seeded lawns under certain conditions.

An Exemption Certificate allows watering any day between 5 and 8 a.m or 7 and 10 p.m. (during Stage 3 Water Restrictions, watering new lawns is allowed only between 5 and 8 a.m.). Watering outside of these times may result in revoking of the certificate and a fine.

Requirements can be dropped off at the Engineering Department.

  • Submit proof of purchase (receipt)
  • Submit photos of new sod/seeded lawn

Exemption Certificates will be valid for 21 days from the date of installation (or 14 days during Stage 3 Water Restrictions).

Please contact the Engineering Department at 604-793-2907 for further inquires.
