Municipality asks residents to conserve water


Residents in Kincardine, Tiverton and the Huronville subdivision are being asked to conserve water while repairs are being completed on the municipal water towers.


The Municipality of Kincardine issued a notice Friday to let residents know that the water towers in Kincardine and Tiverton will be taken out of service May 24 and are expected to remain out of service until Sept. 30 while maintenance is being done. The water services department says conservation measures should be used during this time frame to ensure there will be enough capacity for the Drinking water systems. Stage 1 Lawn watering restrictions are in effect and residents are being asked to try to refrain from any excess outdoor water usage if possible such as car washing, driveway cleaning, excess sprinkler usage and general water wastage.


A work area of 100 feet around each standpipe will be fenced in to keep each work area safe, which includes a portion of the walking trail north of the Kincardine standpipe and also Ross Street between Memorial Park Drive and the arena parking lot in Tiverton. These areas will be temporarily closed and impassible until work is complete.
