Green Waste Clean Up in Anticipation of Water Main Flushing
In anticipation of the next water main flushing program, scheduled for October, Village crews will be carrying out their bi-annual ditch and culvert cleaning program in September. The Village would like to request residents' assistance in cleaning out ditches and culverts located along their property frontage; especially if you have extensive plantings that overhang or encroach onto the Village boulevard over your property line. Please also remove any rocks or objects that could impede crew progress as they work to ensure the culverts and ditches are cleared.
There is no limit to the amount of green waste that can be placed curbside on garbage collection day and the Village encourages residents to use this disposal option as an opportunity to assist in preparation for the flushing program. More information on green waste pickup requirements can be obtained here:

Water Shortage Alert - UPDATE
Crews have addressed the problem at the Magnesia Intake. All residences temporarily placed on the Harvey Intake for water supply have now been moved back to Magnesia; and the Magnesia Intake is now back online.
Water flows in both Harvey Creek and Magnesia Creek are low at this time, due to a combination of hot dry weather and a reduced snow pack. As such, we continue to urge all residents to use water sparingly, and conserve water where possible.
REPORT COYOTE SIGHTINGS!
Did you know? Only one coyote sighting has been reported to the RAPP line since June 3rd despite numerous sightings in the Village. Accurate and timely reporting affects response!
It is imperative to report sightings to the RAPP line! The operator will ask very specific questions about your encounter – this is why it is extremely important for the witness to contact the RAPP line directly at 1-877-952-7277, rather than relaying information through the Village office.
The Conservation Officers Service has advised their mandate is to ensure public safety, which does not include protection of pets. The COS notes it is the responsibility of homeowners to adjust behaviors and take precautions to reduce risk to pets.
