Daytime watering ban for town of Moosomin
July 15, 2021, 9:18 am
The Town of Moosomin has instituted a daytime watering ban in effect 8 am to 8 pm until further notice to preserve the town's water supply.
The town issued the following ban Wednesday, July 14: Due to hot and dry weather that we have been experiencing the past short while, the Town of Moosomin Water Plant in nearing capacity to keep up with production of potable water.
We want to ensure there is water available for human consumption, and water reserve in case of fire, and therefore request that residents/businesses do not water grass between 8:00 am and 8:00 pm. It is during this hottest period of the day, that the water evaporates and therefore needs significantly more water to achieve the same results as watering in the evening.
It is expected that this daytime watering ban will remain in effect for the entire summer season. However, if it is lifted, notice will be given to the public.
