City of Petrolia implements severe water restrictions


The City of Petrolia has been forced to take drastic steps to conserve water. On Sunday, the city implemented Stage 4 of its drought contingency plan.

Stage 4 calls for severe water restrictions, including:

  • Absolutely no outdoor watering
  • No filling of swimming pools with city water
  • No bulk water sales

Water restrictions are effective immediately.

Petrolia residents had been in Stage 3 restrictions for more than one year prior to Sunday’s announcement.
