                Burn Ban Has Been Lifted

Safe burning tips
Consider chipping or composting brush or grass before burning. If you must burn, make sure you know the rules and follow these tips to ensure you burn grass and woody debris safely.

Choose a safe time
Burn during the coolest, dampest and calmest time of the day: 2 hours before sunset, or later
a fire is more likely to get out of control on a hot, dry or windy day

Put fires out two hours after sunrise, or earlier.
Keep your fire small
small fires can be controlled by 1 person using hand tools and water
keep your pile of wood, brush, or wood by-products to be burned less than 2 metres in diameter and less than 2 metres high

An area of grass or leaves can be burned if the area is less than one hectare (2.5 acres) and the length of the flaming edge is kept to less than 30 metres (100 feet)

Choose a safe site
Keep burning piles at least 2 metres from other flammable material so the fire doesn’t escape by running along the ground away from the pile or burn area
if burning an area of grass or leaves, make sure the area is surrounded by a fire-proof boundary, such as a road, wet ditch or ploughed ground

Stay with your fire
If you start a fire outdoors, you must tend the fire, keep it under control, and extinguish it before leaving the site
a responsible person must be present to tend the fire at all times, even if it is contained in an incinerator
keep adequate tools and water on hand to control the fire if it begins to spread

Please Exercise Caution While Burning!

Save Water – More Effective Watering

With the summer weather, excessive lawn watering puts a strain on the Township of Schreiber’s water production capabilities at the water treatment plant.
 
At this time, we are asking for your cooperation in using alternate day lawn watering, where even numbered houses water on even numbered days and odd numbered houses water on odd numbered days.
 
Your cooperation in this matter is greatly appreciated.
Thank You – Township of Schreiber
 
Tips for effective lawn watering:
 
• Do your lawn watering early in the morning or late in the evening. Watering in the afternoon will only see most of your water evaporate in the hot sun.
 
• Water deeply and infrequently. Deep watering promotes a deep root system, while over-watering (daily) promotes shallow root growth, making your lawn less hardy.
 
• Water an area of your lawn for 15-20 minutes before moving your sprinkler to a new area.
