Therefore, the use of sprinklers is restricted to the hours of 6:00 a.m. - 8:00 a.m. and 8:00 p.m. - 10:00 p.m. and on designated days outlined below:

Even Numbered Street Addresses - Monday, Wednesday and Saturday Only

Odd Numbered Street Addresses - Tuesday, Thursday and Sunday Only

Newly installed lawns and landscaping may be watered between 5:00 a.m. - 7:00 a.m. and 8:00 p.m. - 10:00 p.m. any day for a period of sixty (60) days following its installation.

The situation will be monitored, and the guidelines will be adjusted accordingly.

The Town of Torbay Thanks you for your continued cooperation regarding water conservation within the town.
