Port Dover has water problems

Port Dover residents and businesses are being asked to conserve water.
Norfolk County says there’s been an increase in algae following recent storms and officials have had to shut down the water treatment plant to remove the substance.
They say the water continues to be safe and homes and businesses are asked to reduce usage until Monday.
That way, there will be enough water to maintain pressure and ensure an adequate supply for fire protection.
Bulk water haulers are asked to use facilities located in Simcoe and Waterford and outdoor use should be suspended until next week.

 

(https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Algal_bloomTaken in October 2011, the worst algae bloom that Lake Erie has experienced in decades. Record torrential spring rains washed fertilizer into the lake, promoting the growth of microcystin producing cyanobacteria blooms.[1])
