Metro Vancouver to ban lawn sprinkling with Stage 3 water restrictions tomorrow

Metro Vancouver plans to move to Stage 3 water restrictions as of tomorrow, CBC News has learned.

That means all lawn sprinkling with treated drinking water will be banned as well as a number of further restrictions on water use.

This follows last week's provincial declaration of Level 4 drought for the South Coast and Fraser Valley.
