Water customers in Mabou & Port Hood

We highly encourage customers to limit their usage and conserve water until further notice to allow the main lines and fire hydrants to refill. This is crucial in ensuring the Port Hood & the Mabou and District Volunteer Fire Departments have access to an adequate water supply in the case of an emergency. Follow The Municipality of the County of Inverness Facebook page for updates.

We are working very hard preparing contingency plans for these circumstances and expect to have measures in place next week.

Thank you for your cooperation.

An update on the water situation in Port Hood. The Public Works staff have been working all night to restore water but ran into another issue. If all goes well water will be restored this morning, but please remember that when the water is restored pressure may be low, water may be discolored and it takes a long time to fill the reservoir on Convent St so conserve where at all possible. Stay tuned to this page for more updates! Thanks for your patience

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.
