North Dundas Level II Low Water Condition

The Township of North Dundas is implementing a water restriction on all residents until further notice.  Hot and dry weather conditions have severely impacted water conditions.

South Nation Conservation (SNC) has declared a level II low water condition and is requesting the public to reduce water consumption by 20% and to limit non-essential uses. 

Residents of North Dundas who are on municipal water are reminded that as per by-law No 2018-55 outdoor water use is restricted from May 1st to Sept 1st.  Residents with an odd-numbered address are allowed outside use of water between the hours of 5 am and 9 am and again between 7 pm and 11 pm from one connection only.  Residents with an even-numbered address are allowed outside use of water on even-numbered days between the hours of 5 am and 9 am and again between 7 pm and 11 pm from one connection only.   

Effective July 30th, outside water use will be restricted to use of water for yard and garden watering only and residents are asked to use discretion and water only when absolutely necessary.  If conditions continue to worsen, further restrictions may be implemented.

If you have recently installed a significant amount of new grass, sod, or landscaping on a property, the outside use of water shall be permitted on said property for the newly installed grass and/or sod each day, during any part of the day, for a period of one week from the initial date of installation.

No other uses of outdoor watering as defined in By-law No. 2018-55 is allowed at this time.   Property owners should contact SNC if they are experience issues with their well, as shallow wells could go dry.
