Woodward construction delays caused watering ban

The city of Hamilton issued a watering ban which will be in effect at least until Monday the 13th of July. It turns out the mandatory restrictions are resulting from construction at the Woodward Water Treatment Plant, which is temporarily limiting the plant’s capacity for treating water. This construction project was scheduled to be complete before the hot weather brought increased demand on the water supply. However, delays to the project require this action be taken to ensure the water supply in Hamilton is not interrupted.

The ban applies to all parts of Hamilton, including those in Stoney Creek, Dundas, Ancaster, Waterdown and parts of Flamborough and Glanbrook. It will be in place until Monday, July 13.

Residents wishing to, can still hand-water their flowers and vegetable gardens, or water newly installed sod as needed.

The mandatory ban is in place to prevent low or no water pressure, or not enough water for fighting fires.

Where possible, the City has reduced its own irrigation activities in flower islands, sports fields and golf courses. However, due to the heat, municipal spray pads will continue to operate.

Residents with private wells and those living in Carlisle, Freelton, Greensville and Lynden on the local municipal well systems are not impacted by this restriction.

  • delays happen-in Hamilton it seems inevitable-however who was the genius who determined the work must progress now? Why not wait 2 months…..3 months……4 months? Who would’ve known? Danko-an Engineer-is ultimately left holding the bag- a flaming porch rocket-as Head of Public Works..
