Stanstead Journal - - FORUM - Len­noxville

Res­i­dentsof the Bor­ough of Len­noxville who are con­nected to the mu­nic­i­pal­ity’s wa­ter sys­tem may be hav­ing a dry sum­mer. The City of Sher­brooke an­nounced re­stric­tions on out­door wa­ter con­sump­tion in that area be­cause of low wa­ter lev­els at the bor­ough’s three wells, de­spite nor­mal rain­fall re­cently. The wa­ter is per­fectly safe to drink.

Res­i­dents are not al­lowed to use the town’s potable wa­ter sup­ply to wa­ter lawns, hedges, bushes and peren­nial flow­ers or to wash their cars, trucks, mo­tor­cy­cles, all­ter­rain ve­hi­cles and any other type of ve­hi­cle. The wa­ter can no longer be used to wash drive­ways, side­walks, ex­te­rior walls and win­dows or al­lowed to con­tin­u­ally run as is done with some chil­dren’s wa­ter games.

Wa­ter can be used to wa­ter an­nual flow­ers, veg­etable gar­dens and berry bushes as long as it is ad­min­is­tered with ei­ther a bucket or a hose gun that shuts off au­to­mat­i­cally. It can also be used to nor­mal­ize pool wa­ter lev­els or to wa­ter re­cently in­stalled sod.

The pop­u­la­tion is also be­ing asked to re­strict the use of wa­ter in­side the home when us­ing things like the dish­washer, shower, bath, toi­let and clothes washer.
