Outdoor water use advisory lifted
BRAMPTON, ON. July 21, 2020) Residents and businesses are advised the outdoor water use advisory for Brampton, Mississauga and Bolton has been lifted. Repairs to the Lorne Park water treatment plant have been completed to a point where enough capacity has been restored to allow normal water use. The remainder of the work will continue for the balance of the summer.
However, all Peel residents and businesses are asked to continue to practice water conservation, where possible, during the summer months. As it does every year, this will help maintain our water supply, especially while we continue to repair equipment at the Lorne Park facility.
Water saving tips include:
- Watering in the early morning. This will help reduce the amount of water lost to evaporation.
- Adding a 7 cm (3 in) of mulch to your garden. This will help keep moisture in the soil during dry periods.
- Installing a rain sensor if you have an automatic irrigation system.
- Reducing exterior surface washing. Sweep your driveway, walkway, and sidewalk instead.
- Taking vehicles to a car wash.
The Region of Peel appreciates the support of the community while the initial repairs were made. We may, however, need to put another advisory, or other appropriate measures in place, should hot summer weather cause high water demand, or conditions change at our water treatment plant.
