PUBLIC NOTICE: Bulk Water Filling Station

Category: General Notices

Closure/Reopening of the Brenton Bulk Water Filling Station.

 

Each spring, the self-serve bulk water filling station located in Brenton is opened to the public for those who need it. However, after careful consideration, the Yarmouth Water Authority has decided to not open the facility until further notice.

This decision was not made lightly, but due to the ongoing provincial state of emergency caused by COVID-19, it is necessary to keep the facility closed at this time. The closure is part of a concerted effort to slow the spread of COVID-19 in the community and protect both employees and the general public. The nature of how the station is used by the public poses issues around potential spread and measures in place for social distancing.

Opening of the facility will be re-evaluated on a regular basis as the COVID-19 situation evolves and changes. We thank the public for your cooperation and understanding during this challenging time.
