Agency warns that it’s still too dry
email@example.com FINCH | Area residents are still being asked to conserve water as the region continues to bake under drought condi- tions. The South Nation Conservation Water Response Team is asking residents, busi- nesses and industries throughout the wa- tershed to reduce their water consump- tion by 20 per cent. Water consumption can be reduced by limiting non-essential uses such as lawn watering and car wash- ing. Residents should contact their munic- ipalities regarding any local water or fire by-laws that may apply. T he South Nation Watershed remains in a Level 2 LowWater Condition. “A Level 2 Low Water Condition means a minor water supply problem has been de- tected,” says Sandra Mancini, SNC’s Direc- tor of Planning and Engineering. The recent warm and dry conditions have decreased the stream fl ows through- out the watershed to approximately 30 per cent of normal for this time of year. SNC’s Water Response Team, consist- ing of representatives from provincial and municipal governments, agriculture and other special interest groups , will meet next week to discuss implications of the low water conditions. Some dry wells have been reported by property owners to SNC thus far. Further,
due to low water levels, exposed rocks in watercourses pose an additional hazard during recreational activities. SNC will continue to monitor watershed conditions and will provide updates as re- quired. To assist in regional data collection of the situation, property owners, busi- nesses, and industries are encouraged to contact SNC if they are experiencing any unusual water-related problems. Should conditions become drier the Province will be responsible for upgrading the low water condition to level 3. Contact SNC at 1-877-984-2948 or visit www.nation.on.ca for more information.

The renovated Place Mont-Roc will have sprinklers. “People can’t wait”
Ontario Fire Marshal’s Office investigators have said. About 85 people were forced to find alternate accommodations in the wake of the fire that claimed the lives of Marie- Anne Bonin, 84, and her husband, Jean-Paul Bonin, 87. While it is hard to predict how many residents will return to Place Mont- Roc, “We know that many of them can’t wait to return. On a daily basis, staff is asked when it is going to re-open,” says Delacourt. Repairs to the Spence Avenue facility, which employs 32, are expected to be completed by September or October. The cause of the tragedy may not be released until late next year. “We are in the same boat as everyone else,” says Delacourt, relating that the On- tario Fire Marshal’s Office has not told the owner the exact cause of the fire. In fact, a report on the incident may be available in six to ten months from now.
HAWKESBURY | Sprinklerswill be installed at Place Mont-Roc as the Hawkesbury re- tirement home undergoes renovations following a fatal fire two months ago. “Definitely, sprinklers are part of our plans,”says Paul Delacourt, managing direc- tor of Putnam Hall Retirement Residences, the Oakville-based company that owns the Spence Avenue facility where two people died in a May 25 blaze. Under Ontario law, the facility, which was built in the 1980s and passed a Hawkesbury Fire Depart- ment inspection in March, was not required to have a sprinkler system. It is not clear whether sprinklers would have saved the lives of the couple who died after the fire broke out on the third floor of the building,
