Water Concerns

The Municipality of the District of Barrington has heard from a number of residents who are dealing with a lack of water due to the extreme dry conditions that we have been facing this summer. Although the Municipality does not provide, or have access to, a registered water source, Council and staff are investigating how we can assist those with the greatest need.

We are currently developing a list of those that are without water, and are having difficulty in getting water due to financial or logistical issues. If you, or someone you know, are without water please have them email () or call (902 637-2015) the Municipality to provide us with the details of your current situation. Please provide your name, address, details of the number of people in the household, current water situation, how you are currently addressing the situation, and contact info.

Council recognizes that without a substantial amount of rain in the coming weeks that this situation will only worsen, and are taking action to do what we can to assist.
Council and staff would also ask that you check on your friends and neighbours, especially those most vulnerable, to ensure that everyone is finding access to drinking water.
