Penhold issues outdoor water ban

One of Penhold’s water wells is out of service, and as a result the town has issued an outdoor water ban. In a Thursday news release, the town indicated it is operating on its secondary water well and is unable to meet the total daily demand for water until the first well is up and running.

One of Penhold’s water wells is out of service, and as a result the town has issued an outdoor water ban.

In a Thursday news release, the town indicated it is operating on its secondary water well and is unable to meet the total daily demand for water until the first well is up and running.

Pump 1 regularly provides about 60 per cent of the town’s water. Equipment is being delivered to pull the pump, examine the problem and take necessary action.

Alberta Environment is working with the town to get the pump back into action as soon as possible.

In the interim, restrictions have been placed on outdoor watering including:

— No watering of lawns. Residents are asked to turn off any automatic lawn sprinklers.

— New sod this year is permitted to be watered for one hour before 10 a.m. and one hour after 7 p.m.
