Durham Region is encouraging Sunderland residents to conserve water as staff work to establish an additional municipal water supply well in the village.
Effective immediately, all residents using the municipal water supply in Sunderland are asked to conserve their water use by limiting non-essential use, practicing odd/even lawn watering and using water efficiently inside their homes.
Residents will be advised when normal water use may resume.
“As the weather is getting warmer, and the Sunderland drinking water system in the Township of Brock is solely relying on one drinking water well after the second drinking water well was taken out of service in May 2017, residents are reminded to conserve water,” the notice reads.
