Potential Drought Season
Published: Tuesday, 29 June 2021 11:44
In light of the potential for another drought season, we would like the public to start preparing now by conserving water and thinking of ways to be more self-sufficient in water collection.
Shelburne County East Emergency Management will continue to explore options for additional supports for sustainable access to water in our communities. As in previous years, public water collection opportunities will be made available as the need arises. Please check regularly for updates at https://www.facebook.com/shelburneemo.
Drought conditions are expected to continue annually and may begin earlier and/last longer each year. There are some proactive activities you can do around your home to conserve water and prepare for a water shortage. Everyone is encouraged to collect rainwater by capturing downspout run off or large container collection.
Please use this flyer as a guide to support you in accessing available resources to manage and mitigate chronic water shortages.
