Phase-One Water Restrictions implemented in Kawartha Lakes

August 12, 2016 - KAWARTHA LAKES– Due to extended drought and resultant low water levels throughout the City of Kawartha Lakes, Phase-One Water Restrictions are being implemented.

The following Municipal Drinking Water Systems are on Phase-One Water Restrictions:
Lindsay
Birch Point/Highview Acres   Bobcaygeon
Canadiana Shores  Fenelon Falls
Janetville   King’s Bay
Kinmount   Manorview (Bethany)
Mariposa Estates   Norland
Pinewood (Pontypool)   Pleasant Point
Sonya  Southview Estates
Victoria Glen (Omemee)   Victoria Place
Western Trent   Woodfield (Bethany)
Woods of Manilla   Woodville


In Accordance With BY-LAW 2011-260 Phase-One Water Restrictions include:
 Residents with odd-numbered municipal addresses can water their lawns, flower
beds, gardens, trees and shrubs on odd numbered days only
 Residents with even-numbered municipal addresses can water their lawns,
flower beds, gardens, trees and shrubs on even numbered days only
 Watering can only take place between 6 am – 9 am or 7 pm – 10 pm


Although rain is in the forecast for the next several days, it will not be enough to bring water levels up to the normal seasonal level. Restrictions are in effect until further notice.
Water Conservation
Precipitation over the last several months has reached the lowest level in more than ten years. As a result, Kawartha Conservation has recently declared a Low Water Condition within its watershed.
Residential, agricultural and commercial water users on both municipal systems and private wells are asked to do their part to voluntarily conserve water. Using water faster than it can replenish itself will lead to serious water shortages in the future.
Questions can be directed to David Kerr, Manager of Environmental Services 705-324-9411 extension 1118 or Amber Hayter, Supervisor of Environmental Services at extension 1120.
