Outdoor water use ban for Caledonia/Cayuga, Level 2 restrictions in effect for all other communities

Caledonia & Cayuga – Outdoor Water Use Ban until July 13

The City of Hamilton announced a mandatory ban on all non-essential outdoor water use across all parts of Hamilton until July 13. As Caledonia and Cayuga’s water supply comes from Hamilton’s drinking water system, residents of these communities are being asked to comply with the complete ban.

Residents of Cayuga, Caledonia and surrounding areas on the Hamilton water system can still hand-water their flowers and vegetable gardens, or water newly installed sod as needed.

The mandatory restrictions in effect for are resulting from construction at Hamilton’s Woodward Water Treatment Plant, which is temporarily limiting the plant’s capacity for treating water. This construction project was scheduled to be complete before the hot weather brought increased demand on the water supply. However, delays to the project require this action be taken to ensure the water supply in Hamilton and surrounding areas is not interrupted.

The mandatory ban is in place to prevent low or no water pressure, or not enough water for fighting fires.

All Other Communities – Outdoor Water Use Restrictions – Level 2

Haldimand County municipal water customers are reminded that there are outdoor water use restrictions under By-Law No. 1420/14. These restrictions are implemented to conserve water during seasonal high water demand periods. Restrictions apply to residents connected to Haldimand County’s municipal drinking water system.

Currently, outdoor water use restrictions are at Level 2. Outdoor water use is to follow the following schedule:

  • Premises with an odd number address on odd numbered days
  • Premises with an even number address on even numbered days

These restrictions include activities such as lawn watering, watering trees, shrubs, flowers, gardens, residential vehicle washing, filling residential swimming and wading pools & other related activities.

Your cooperation will help ensure a safe and reliable water supply for all customers.
