2016 Drought Information
On behalf of the Otonabee Region Water Response Team, Otonabee Conservation is pleased to provide the following illustrations of precipitation receipts recorded at four different stations across the watershed region. The rain gauges will be updated once the September rainfall records have been analyzed.
The Otonabee Region Water Response Team reminds members of the watershed community that the Level 2 drought first declared on July 12, 2016 remains in effect. This means that water users of both municipal and private water supplies are strongly encouraged to reduce their water use by 20% in their daily routines and activities. There are several ways to conserve water every day. For more information refer to the Water Conservation Fact Sheet fact sheet.
