Residents in Gatineau's Hull and Aylmer sectors are being asked to conserve water as the city upgrades its water treatment plant over the next few months.

Starting Sept. 1, people living in the two sectors will be under a "mechanical watering ban" — in other words, any form of watering that doesn't involve a person holding a hose is prohibited, the City of Gatineau said in a statement Wednesday.

Inspectors will be patrolling the two sectors "day and night," the city said, and violators could face fines of $200 plus administrative fees.
