They're fun. They're affordable. They're engaging for children aged three to 12, with songs and games, crafts and drama, and an off-site trip every week.

City of Kitchener Summer Playground programs run from July 5 to Aug. 13. These half-day programs are $20-30 per week, with a few full day programs at $75 per week.  Fee assistance is available for families who qualify.

Mass registration evenings took place earlier in June, but starting June 21, families can register for remaining spots at the following community centres during their regular business hours:

*       Chandler Mowat Community Centre, 222 Chandler Dr.

Region of Waterloo Water Conservation By-Law is in Effect!

| 1 Comment

It's that time of the year again! From May 31 to September 30, the Region of Waterloo's Water Conservation By-Law 07-069 (and amendments) is in effect. The purpose of the Region's Water Conservation By-Law is to limit outdoor water use to specified days and hours to help reduce peak water use and limit the risk of an outdoor water ban.

Outdoor watering days are based on the last digit of the residents' house number. Waterloo Region residents are allowed to: water lawns one day per week and water trees, shrubs, flowers, gardens, vehicles, and top-up residential pools on alternate days. All watering must take place on designated days between the hours of 5:30-10 a.m. and 7-11 p.m. However, watering by can or bucket is allowed at any time during the week. Washing streets, driveways, walkways, and buildings is prohibited.

Know your lawn watering day:
If your address ends in:
0 or 1 your watering day is: Monday
2 or 3 Tuesday
4 or 5 Wednesday
6 or 7 Thursday
8 or 9 Friday

* Lawn watering is not permitted on weekends

For all other outdoor water activities:
Residents may water on alternate days based on their house number. Odd numbered addresses may water on odd numbered calendar days while even numbered addresses may water on even numbered calendar days.

All watering must take place on designated days between the hours of 5:30-10 a.m. and 7-11 p.m.

For example:

Address: 126 King St.
Lawn watering day: Thursday
All other outdoor water activities: Even days (2nd of June, 4th of June, 6th of June, etc.)

For more information, call 519-575-4495 between 8:30 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. or go to www.region.waterloo.on.ca/water
