If you have installed a new lawn, either by placing sod or turf or by seeding, or have installed new landscaping on a substantial part of the outdoor portion of your premises you must provide proof of purchase, for a permit authorizing the person to water the new lawn and new landscaping when Stage 1 Restrictions or Stage 2 Restrictions are in force, at times specified in the permit, at the premises described in the permit, during the currency of the permit.

A permit does not exempt the holder from Stage 3 Restrictions or Stage 4 Restrictions.
Permission for Use:
This permit is issued during the water restriction period May 1 to October 15 where the limited hours of sprinkler use is inadequate to support new lawn or landscaping. The applicant is authorized for watering use for three hours on any day of the week between the hours of 4:00 am and 9:00 am.

If Metro Vancouver escalates the "Water Shortage Response Plan" to Stage 3, the permit will not be renewed. Permits issued in Stages 1 or 2 remain in effect until the permit expires.
