Public Notice: Voluntary Water Conservation Order

Effective Friday, September 11, 2020, the Town of Antigonish Water Utility is encouraging customers within the Town and fringe areas to please conserve water until further notice.

Weather conditions and the lower than normal rainfall are again impacting the water levels at the James River Dam. As a result, the Town is taking the necessary precautions and encouraging residents to conserve water where possible.

At this stage, these voluntary conservation measures include avoiding activities that use excess water such as washing your vehicle, washing down driveways/walkways, watering gardens and watering lawns. These precautions will remain in place until we receive a substantial amount of rainfall.

The Town is closely monitoring our water storage, as well as the weather conditions, and will share notices when conditions around the conservation order change or are lifted.

The Town thanks all residents in advance for their cooperation and for using our water resources in a responsible manner.
