The Municipality of Meaford is asking its residents connected to municipal water to avoid drinking the water, and to limit water consumption as much as possible.

Meaford’s water system has been temporarily shut down to ensure that no by-products from a fire at 452 Sykes Street North last night enter the system.

They are asked to drink bottled water until further notice. They are protecting the system from running dry, which could cause water main breaks which would require additional repairs.

In order to conserve water they are asking that you don’t take baths or showers unless absolutely necessary, do not wash vehicles, water lawns or gardens, fill pools, and do not run the dishwasher or clothes washer unless absolutely necessary.

There will e an update from the Municipality by lunchtime today.

This notice does not impact those on the Leith water system.
