Despite the rain, we’re getting ready for summertime watering

In preparation for the drier days of summer, Building Operations is currently re-pressurizing and testing our sprinkler systems. That means you may see sprinklers starting and stopping repeatedly or even briefly running while it’s raining outside.

As we move into summer and the ground dries, the system’s programs will be turned on to match Metro Vancouver’s water restriction schedule. Additionally, about 70% of our system (and growing) is outfitted with rain sensors so, scheduled or not, they will not turn on when it has recently rained or is raining.
