Water Conservation Inititaive

The City of Morden Council declared severe drought conditions on April 8 and implemented water restrictions on May 4, 2021.

Going by the current drawdown rate, the lake level will hit 8.5′ below Full Supply Levels by June 23 unless there is significant rain resulting in fresh inflows to the lake, our only source of water.

Lake level at 8.5′ below FSL will trigger extreme drought conditions resulting in further water use restrictions.

A team effort

In response to this situation, the City of Morden has launched a water conservation campaign to inform, engage and reward residents willing to take the matter into their own hands.
