Municipal staff have been able to adjust water treatment processes at the Judique Water Treatment Facility and water levels in the reservoir have recovered. The August 1st Water Conservation Advisory is now retracted. However, it is always prudent to conserve water in the summer to retain water in the reservoir in case of emergency.

To conserve water, please:
- Take shorter showers and no baths;
- Do not water your lawn or gardens;
- Do not let your faucet run when washing or rinsing;
- Avoid washing clothes as much as possible;
- Keep a bottle of water in the fridge to avoid letting water run to obtain a cold drink;
- Flush your toilet less often.

Thank you for your cooperation during this process.

Active Transportation Plan

Your input is needed!

Many residents throughout Inverness County spend time on the trails for recreation, and now the Municipality is looking for ways to make it easier for people to walk and cycle as part of their daily routines. The Plan will provide residents and visitors with improved options for safe and enjoyable non-motorized transportation and create new physical connections within each community centre in the County. A series of open house events will be held the week of November 27 – November 30.
