No Water Use Day in Windermere Feb 9th

The reservoir project is nearing completion in Windermere.  On Tuesday, our contractor (Border Holdings Ltd) will be installing secondary chlorination for the Windermere Water System.  As a result, there will be one more “no water use” day for anyone on the Windermere Water System Tuesday, February 9, 2016 from 9:00 am - 4:00 pm.

During this time, residents are asked to use as little water as possible from the system.  As with the work in late January, we need to have all the water in the system during this process, and the water system cannot be fully shut down. 

Turning on a tap, bathing, flushing a toilet or running a load of laundry would all draw down water, so it is critical for residents to make sure they use as little water as possible between 9:00 am and 4:00 pm.

The Windermere Elementary School will be closed for a Professional Development day. Windermere residents are asked to ensure they are prepared and to use as little water as possible during this time.

We recognize the impact these “no water use days” have and are working hard to minimize the impact to the community. Thank you in advance for your cooperation and patience as we work to complete the reservoir project and increase the community’s water system supply.
