Outdoor water use advisory in effect for Mississauga and Brampton
BRAMPTON, ON. (July 13, 2020) - Residents and businesses are advised that, effective immediately, an outdoor water use advisory is now in place.
The advisory is due to unexpected repairs at one of the Region’s treatment facilities and is necessary to ensure our water supply levels are maintained throughout the system. The Region of Peel will continue to maintain the integrity of our system throughout the duration of the advisory, which is expected to last for the next few days. Normal outdoor water use practices will be resumed as soon as possible.
The outdoor water use advisory asks residents and businesses to do the following:
- Reduce all outdoor watering. This includes watering lawns, gardens and planters. Any residents or businesses with automatic irrigation are being asked to shut systems off.
- Stop or reduce filling or topping up pools, hot tubs, ponds and decorative fountains.
- Stop or reduce all exterior surface washing. Sweep away debris from driveways, walkways, and sidewalks.
- Delay washing vehicles, including at car wash facilities.
The Region of Peel understands that some of our residents and businesses may be inconvenienced; however, this advisory is necessary to ensure our water supply levels are maintained throughout the system. For information on efficient outdoor water use visit watersmartpeel.ca
