Conserve water - please

Conserve water 1

West Kelowna Mayor Gord Milsom is urging all Westside residents to conserve water.

"Don't water the driveway, water your lawn. Yellow is ok, it's kind of the new green. Don't cut the grass too short. Mulch and leave the mulch on your lawn. Keep your lawnmower blades sharp. There's things we can do and if we can reduce the amount of water we use, we can also save money."

Milsom says city staff is monitoring the reservoirs carefully because we still don't have enough rain to kick the Okanagan out of drought conditions.
