As a result of the continuation of the extreme dry weather conditions, the Municipality’s water source (La Salle River) has seen a continual drop in volume. Therefore, the Municipality will be implementing Stage 3 of the Water Restriction By-Law to regulate the use of water for non-essential purposes effective Saturday, July 17, 2021 at 12:01 am.
STAGE 3 restrictions include the following at ANY TIME:
- no yard sprinkling;
- no washing down of sidewalks, driveways or other outdoor surfaces;
- no washing motor vehicles with a hose unless the hose is equipped with a shut off device that is spring loaded and operates by using hand pressure.
Stage 3 will remain in effect until further notice.
Watering Permits are still available for a person who has installed a new lawn at a fee of $30.00. Call the Municipal Office at 204-736-2255 for further information or visit our website at www.rmofmacdonald.com to view a copy of Water Restriction By-Law No. 22/06.
