 Water use restrictions in place for New Tecumseth 

With the extreme warm weather and lack of recent rainfall, there is a higher demand on our water systems, which leads to decreased potable water reserves and low aquifer levels.

As such, the Town of New Tecumseth must put watering restrictions in place for all of New Tecumseth – Alliston, Beeton and Tottenham. Effective immediately and until further notice, the following restrictions are in place for New Tecumseth residents:

Residents, businesses, and corporations may ONLY use water for the purpose of watering grass and other uses related to landscaping during these times ONLY: 

a)     even numbered property addresses on even numbered calendar days between 7 p.m. and 8:30 p.m.

b)     odd numbered property addresses on odd numbered calendar days between 7 p.m. and 8:30 p.m. 

As per Bylaw No. 92-78 and Bylaw No. 95-81, fines may be issued for those who contravene the water restrictions.  Please see below notice.
