2017 Fire Hydrant Flushing

Please be aware that from April 24 to June 30, 2017 between 7:30 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. Monday through Thursday each week Water Works Staff will be completing fire hydrant flushing and maintenance of the Cardinal Woods & the Coles/Island Lake/Purple Hill water systems. The programs are completed on a regular basis to ensure the fire hydrants remain in good working order and that any accumulated sediments in the watermains are removed.

Due to possible sedimentation, the flushing may cause discolouration of the water, so please check your cold water supply before using. If discolouration does occur, let the cold water run until it clears.

Users are also reminded that Water Works Staff will continue to regularly flush fire hydrants in some areas on subsequent Wednesdays as part of an ongoing maintenance program. Again, the water should be checked for discolouration before use on those days.

Your cooperation and understanding during the fire hydrant flushing and maintenance program is appreciated.

Town congratulates Adamo Estate Winery for terminating the use of Bird Bangers

On March 24th, 2017 Adamo Estate Winery announced that they would no longer utilize bird bangers at their vineyards in Mono.

Shannon Smith, Director of Marketing at Adamo Estate Winery, said the winery will be employing “multi-faceted bird abatement efforts" in lieu of the bird bangers. In their press release the winery stated that they will be adding, "new-to-Canada technology and will be the only vineyard in Canada" to use it.

The Town of Mono congratulates Adamo Estate Winery on their decision to no longer use bird bangers/cannons and applauds their entrepreneurial spirit to invest in these new technologies.

The Town had been facilitating an amicable solution with residents and Adamo Estate Winery to resolve concerns regarding the noise from bird bangers and this step by the winery appears to have settled the matter.

Adamo Estate Winery's press release is available on their Facebook page.

Spring Safety: Take Caution near Waterways

The Nottawasaga Valley Conservation Authority reminds everyone to stay well back from waterways, ditches, ponds and lakes this time of year.

NVCA logo

With spring-like temperatures arriving in February, unsafe ice and slippery banks already exist. The onset of spring has brought rain and melting snow, causing the breakup of ice along watercourses and lakes and high stream flows. These hazardous conditions can cause life-threatening injury if a person falls into the extremely cold water.

Conservation Authorities across the region remind residents to keep family and pets away from the edge of streams, rivers, ponds and lakes at this time of year. Especially during March Break, it is important to supervise children and help them understand the dangers of playing near creeks and streams. Anglers, canoeists, hikers, hunters and other recreational users need to be aware of the dangerous conditions that could pose a risk to personal safety.

Please exercise caution around any waterbody over the next few weeks and help make this a safe and enjoyable spring.

The NVCA continues to monitor waterways and will issue flood messages as conditions warrant.
