Planting Project : Shelburne Waterfront

For the people who are volunteering to help with the planting project along the waterfront this weekend, if you have any of the following items to use that day, please bring them along: garden gloves, trowel, watering can, or large shovel. We are also looking to borrow 3 wheelbarrows for the day to help move materials. If anyone in the neighbourhood has one that they would lend the planting crew for the day, please let us know. Planting will take place Saturday and Sunday from 9am to 4pm. Feel free to drop in and help out if you haven't already contacted us.

The Boil Water Advisory for Commission Street has been lifted

Important Notice Re: Water Conservation Order

 For Town Water Customers, please be advised that Town Staff are in the process of determining the source of a major water leak. Combined with the mechanical issues we experienced on Friday, these circumstances have led to the water towers being at critically low levels. Customers may experience low or no water pressure until the situation is resolved.

In order to alleviate the demand on the water system and to allow the water tower levels to increase to a normal range we are asking that all water customers conserve their water use until further notice. We would also like to note that the water quality remains high and there is no requirement to boil your water. We will provide updates as the situation unfolds and appreciate your patience.
