Water System The water system has been turned off for the season.
Please make sure the tap in the water box is turned off. The water team will start to blow the lines next week. If your water box tap is left open, there is risk of flooding, toilets blown, and frozen pipes. Please make sure you check your water box.
Thank you to all the volunteers who came out to help pull the pipes out of the water today. We appreciate your assistance.

End of Season Preperations Please start to fill your cisterns slowly for the end of the season so cisterns are not being filled all at once. This will prevent a stain on the water system. We appreciate your cooperation with this.
The season ends October 19th, 2023, however, it is weather-dependent. The system may need to be shut down earlier if the weather is going turn.
The water team is looking for volunteers to help pull the lines from the lake. This will occur around October 19th - 21st. The date will be firmed up closer to the date since it will be weather dependent. If you are willing to help out, please let us know by emailing the secretary at firstname.lastname@example.org. She will forward your name to the water team.
posted Sept. 12, 2023 at 4:00pm ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Water System - Important Message - June 12, 2023 As you are aware the water has been shutdown since early this morning. We lost power to the pump house and we were unable to make water.
Marc was able to get Hydro One out to assess the situation. The result was a broken connection caused by downed branches from last nights wind storm. This line has since been repaired and the trees are being cut back to ensure this problem does not reoccur. Water will be up and running hopefully by 7 pm.
Please continue to conserve as it will take time to get our tanks back up to capacity. If there is a large consumption rate then we will have to shutdown the water again to restock our reservoirs. Thank you
We have had an unusually dry and hot period lately and water consumption has been extremely high.
Normal consumption is approximately 20,000 gallons per day but we are using over 40,000 gallons.
We know that people are watering their lawns, washing their homes and vehicles, and filing their cisterns. These actions can not take place when we are under a conserve water warning. Not adhering to conserve water alerts means that the hardest hit people are those without cisterns. We need to be considerate to all the members of our community.
All our lines have been checked throughout the Point and there are no leaks so consumption is the only reason for our shortages.
The men on the water team work very hard trying to keep up with the demand. It is not as easy as flipping a switch. This work load doubles when consumption is high because there is increased testing, pumps are working longer and harder and therefore must be attended to more frequently and filters need checking more often to maintain our Ministry of Health standards.
There is a big lake out there and it is difficult to conceive that we could run out of water but we are governed by the Ministry that we are only allowed to remove so much water yearly.
Moving forward, stronger action will have to be taken if abuse of the water system and team continues.

When the lake is rough (brown), it can impact our ability to make water.
Please CONSERVE water by running off your cistern (if you have one) when the lake is rough (brown). Note: We ask that you fill your cisterns and water your lawns during weekdays when demand is lower.
