Outdoor water use advisory lifted in Mississauga
The Region of Peel says the outdoor water use advisory for Brampton, Mississauga and Bolton has been lifted.
The region says repairs to the Lorne Park water treatment plant have been completed to a point where enough capacity has been restored to allow normal water use. The remainder of the work will continue throughout the summer.
The region is still asking Peel residents and businesses to continue to practice water conservation during the summer months.
"As it does every year, this will help maintain our water supply, especially while we continue to repair equipment at the Lorne Park facility," the region said in a news release.
The region says some water-saving tips include:
- Watering in the early morning to help reduce the amount of water lost to evaporation
- Adding a 7 cm (3 in) of mulch to your garden to help keep moisture in the soil during dry periods
- Installing a rain sensor if you have an automatic irrigation system
- Reducing exterior surface washing by sweeping your driveway, walkway, and sidewalk instead
- Taking vehicles to a car wash.
"The Region of Peel appreciates the support of the community while the initial repairs were made. We may, however, need to put another advisory, or other appropriate measures in place, should hot summer weather cause high water demand, or conditions change at our water treatment plant."
