September 29, 2016 - Press Release - UARB Decision
Thursday, September 29, 2016 (Windsor, NS) – The Municipality of the District of West Hants is disappointed with the Utility and Review Board’s (UARB) decision today to proceed with the application to amalgamate Windsor and West Hants, and require the Municipality split the cost of the studies involved.
We do sympathize with the residents over the continued water issues. With the current drought that we are experiencing the entire province is short on water and public works departments everywhere are all taking preventative steps until watershed levels recover. This is no different than what they are experiencing in the eastern HRM region. The fact is there has been a mandatory water reduction ban implemented by the Town of Windsor, who have requested that the water fill station on Morison be temporarily shut down until their source levels recover. Our primary concern is that our TMP and Wentworth users which share this same water source may completely run to critical levels, as our water fill station has been the single largest consumer on the system (over double the consumption this year as last year for the same time period).
