SOUTH NATION CONSERVATION AREA, Ontario – The South Nation Conservation Authority (SNC) has declared that there are low water conditions across it’s watershed region, which includes North and South Dundas and parts of North Glengarry and North Stormont.
“Despite a cool and wet spring and recent isolated rainstorms, an overall lack of precipitation throughout the summer has led to the current low water condition. Records indicate that precipitation over the past three months was at least 20 per cent below normal,” reads a press release from the SNC. “While in Level I status, SNC asks residents and businesses to reduce their water consumption by 10 per cent to help mitigate the impacts of low water conditions. Water consumption can be reduced by limiting non-essential uses such as lawn watering and car washing.”
There are three low water condition levels. Level One indicates that there may be potential water shortage issues.
