KCCA downgrades its low water condition
For immediate release
St. Thomas – After a record breaking dry summer and fall, water levels are improving in the Kettle Creek Conservation Authority (KCCA) watershed.
“Due to seasonal snow and rain that has helped to boost water levels, all of our stream gauge stations are recording normal water levels for this time of year,” says Jennifer Dow, water conservation supervisor. “As a result we are downgrading our current Level 2 Low Water Condition down to a Level 1 Low Water Condition.”
A Level I Low Water condition, first declared in July 2016, is the first of three levels and reflects concern for available water. Level II, declared in September 2016, suggests a potentially serious problem. Level III indicates a failure of the water supply to meet demand.
KCCA would like to thank all the watershed residents for making a conscious effort in their water conservation over the last few months. “We do not have an unlimited supply of fresh drinking water on the earth so water conservation is very important,” says Jennifer. “Taking steps to conserve water year round around your home and in your yard will save you money and help the environment.”
