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.
