Residents of Carlisle need to be aware of their significant water usage. 80% of water used by residents on the Carlisle municipal water system is used by less than 80 Carlisle subdivision properties. To address the over usage of water in Carlisle, a committee of 10 residents (C3 Committee) was formed in 2015 to assist city staff and Councillor Partridge to develop a water conservation management plan specifically for residents on the municipal water system. It is critical that Carlisle residents reduce their household water consumption, particularly through lawn watering with sprinkler systems.
Members of the Carlisle Conservation Committee (C3) in partnership with the City of Hamilton have created a great online conservation resource tailored for the residents of Carlisle. This website includes the history of water use in Carlisle, conservation tips, lawn care tips, plant selection, videos, and watering restrictions along with up-to-date information about our daily water use.
