Residents Of Lindsay And Oakwood Asked To Conserve Water On May 2 As City Performs “Critical Maintenance” On Lindsay Water Treatment Plant

KAWARTHA LAKES-The City of Kawartha Lakes is notifying all residents of Lindsay and Oakwood that are on municipal water services, that staff will be performing planned critical maintenance at the Lindsay Water Treatment Plant on May 2, 2023 and residents are asked to conserve water on that day.

The plant will not be able to produce drinking water for the duration of the maintenance activities, and water will be supplied from the system’s three storage facilities.

In addition, the bulk water stations located at 33 Mary St. E and Thornhill Road in Lindsay will be closed for the day. Bulk water will remain available at the Fenelon Falls bulk water station. The Fire Department has been advised of this project and fire response will be maintained according to the City.

Officials say water will remain safe to drink at all times.

To ensure the water supply remains sufficient for all users, the City will be implementing Phase Two Water Conservation Measures in accordance with By-law 2021-162 for the Town of Lindsay and the Village of Oakwood for May 2, 2023. These restrictions will only be in place for May 2 unless otherwise advised.

Phase Two Water Measures include:

  • No lawn or garden watering using sprinklers/garden hose (only manual watering is permitted for flowers, gardens, trees and shrubs);
  • No washing of motor vehicles;
  • No filling or topping up of any swimming pools, wading pools, hot tubs, garden ponds, and fountains and other outdoor water features; and
  • No use of outdoor misting systems.

Please note that Phase Two water conservation measures are enforceable.
