Water ban lifted for the communities of
Kleinburg and Nashville in the City of Vaughan

 

The Regional Municipality of York thanks residents for their conservation efforts

 

NEWMARKET ??" The Regional Municipality of York has lifted the outdoor water use ban for the communities of Kleinburg and Nashville in the City of Vaughan.

York Region would like to thank residents for their patience and water conservation efforts while water reserves returned to safe operating levels. Regional staff will continue monitoring levels through the summer months to ensure an adequate supply of water is available for fire-fighting services.

Each of York Region’s nine municipalities has adopted an Outdoor Water Use Bylaw, which regulates the outdoor use of municipal drinking water. The bylaws uniformly state even numbered houses may water on even numbered days, odd numbered houses may water on odd numbered days. There is no restriction to watering outdoor plants using a watering can or using water collected in a rain barrel.

In order to prevent further water bans throughout York Region, residents are asked to adhere to their local outdoor water use bylaw.
