We would like to inform all residents that our water plant is currently running at 43 litres per second, which is getting close to its maximum capacity of 45 litres per second. We kindly ask for your cooperation in conserving water to ensure that we have enough supply for our community’s needs.
Here are some recommendations on how to conserve water at home and in your workplace:
- Fix leaks and drips: A single leaky faucet can waste up to 3,000 gallons of water per year. Make sure to fix any leaks or drips as soon as you notice them.
- Install water-efficient fixtures: Low-flow showerheads, faucets, and toilets can save thousands of gallons of water per year. Consider upgrading to water-efficient fixtures to help reduce your water usage.
- Water your lawn and garden efficiently: Water your lawn and garden early in the morning or late in the evening to reduce evaporation, and use a soaker hose or drip irrigation system to target plant roots. You can also consider using rain barrels to collect water for your garden. Rain barrels can be purchased at the Morden Civic Centre.
- Use water wisely indoors: Turn off the tap while brushing your teeth, only run the dishwasher and washing machine when they’re full, and take shorter showers.
- Get involved in the community: Attend water conservation events and spread the word about the importance of water conservation.
We understand that these changes may seem small, but they can have a big impact on our community’s water usage. We appreciate your cooperation in helping us conserve water and ensure a sustainable future for our city.
