Outdoor water use advisory in effect for Mississauga
Mississauga residents and businesses are advised that effective immediately, an outdoor water use advisory is now in place.
The advisory is due to unexpected repairs at one of the Region's treatment facilities and is necessary to ensure that water supply levels are maintained throughout the system.
The Region of Peel will continue to maintain the integrity of the system throughout the duration of the advisory.
The advisory is expected to last for the next few days.
Normal outdoor water use practices will be resumed as soon as possible.
The outdoor water use advisory asks residents and businesses to reduce all outdoor watering including watering lawns, gardens and planters and any residents or businesses with automatic irrigation are being asked to shut systems off.
Additionally, residents and businesses are being asked to stop or reduce filling or topping up pools, hot tubs, ponds and decorative fountains as well as stopping or reducing all exterior surface washing.
Instead, they are being recommended to sweep away debris from driveways, walkways, and sidewalks and to delay washing vehicles, including at car wash facilities.
The Region of Peel understands that this may be an inconvenience.
However, this advisory is necessary to ensure that water supply levels are maintained throughout the system.
