Residential Fire Pit Regulations

   Minimize

Due to the unusually dry conditions we are experiencing this year, the Saskatoon Fire Department reminds everyone of the regulations for residential fire pits.

Currently, a fire ban has not issued within city limits.

Protect Our River!

   Minimize

Water from your street drains directly to our river – UNTREATED.

Eight actions you can take to help keep our river clean:
·         Wash your car at a carwash to prevent soap from entering storm drains.
·         Scoop your dog’s poop and put it in the garbage.
·         Take hazardous household chemicals to designated drop-off locations.
·         Fertilize lawns and gardens naturally with compost, grass cuttings and topsoil.
·         Keep insects away with natural predators such as birds (houses), ladybugs (leaf litter), spiders (leave webs) and bats (boxes).
·         Pull weeds by hand or host a weed pulling party.
·         Sweep dirt and sediment onto the lawn not the street.
·         Fix car leaks so fluids don’t get washed down the storm drains.

Yellow Fish RoadTM
Help build awareness by painting storm drains in your neighbourhood with a yellow fish and the words “rainwater only” This helps remind your friends and neighbours that what goes down our storm drains affects our river.  Contact the Girl Guides to borrow a painting kit and get involved.
