Water Restrictions – Drinking Water System – UPDATE #3

Water Restrictions – Drinking Water System
March 13, 2018 @ 5:55 p.m.
To: All Residents/Businesses of the Town of Smiths Falls
On March 12th, the Town experienced a major water main break on one of the three
water mains which supply drinking water across the Rideau River. This feeder main
has been taken out of service and drinking water supplies have been restored. The
Town has also been in consultation with the Leeds, Grenville & Lanark District Health
Unit and confirms that there are no concerns regarding drinking water quality.
Presently, the Town is requesting that residents and businesses on the south side
of the river continue to limit non-essential use of water until further notice. These
restrictions will remain in effect until such time as repairs to the water crossing have
been completed.
We thank everyone for their continued cooperation and patience.
Please stay tuned to the Town’s webpage (www.smithsfalls.ca) and our Facebook
page for further updates.
