Water Restrictions in 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.
