Despite recent rain, minor low water conditions continue
The Rideau Valley Low Water Response Team maintained a Level 1 low water advisory for the watershed when it met for the third time on August 10. Although increased rainfall has brought some local areas back to normal levels, rainfall has varied across the watershed, leaving other areas still quite low. The low water response team is led by the RVCA and includes member municipalities and government agencies. The team is asking residents and businesses to reduce non-essential water use as much as possible during the dry period.
