CLOCA issues a Level 1 Low Water Conditions Statement June 25, 2020

The Central Lake Ontario Conservation Authority (CLOCA) is issuing a Level 1 Low Water conditions statement for watersheds within the CLOCA jurisdiction as a result of persistent dry conditions and below average rainfall in May and June. Low water conditions are especially important for surface water takers and shallow well users.

Under the Ontario Low Water Response Program, residents and businesses are encouraged to conserve water by voluntarily reducing non-essential uses, both at home and at work, to help achieve a 10 per cent reduction in overall water use. Please see media release for additional information.
