Due to damages from the June 19th flood to the Mosquito Creek Pumping Station, we are currently experiencing restrictions on the amount of water we can draw from the creek in a 24 hour period. At this time, we are drawing enough water to meet our daily needs, but it is prudent that the Town implement Level I water restrictions immediately until further notice, to ensure the availability of water should an extraordinary situation occur. We are working diligently to rectify the situation. We would like to thank-you in advance for your co-operation and patience.
