Central Lake Ontario Conservation monitors water levels and precipitation and assists in the coordination and support of a local, voluntary, water conservation response when water levels are low.  


Conditions are within normal limits.

Level 1

First indication of potential water supply problems, primarily a warning level - Key focus is on voluntary conservation of water.

Level 2

Indicates a potentially serious problem - conservation of water is extended to restrictions on non-essential uses.

Level 3

Indicates a failure of the water supply to meet demand - Key focus is on conservation, regulation and enforcement of non-essential uses.
