Beginning on April 30, 2018, Loyalist Township Utilities will temporarily close down the Amherstview water tower in order to undertake the relining of the tank's interior. This maintenance is necessary to preserve the integrity of the tower. The shutdown is expected to last until June 15, 2018. Throughout the entirety of the tower shutdown, Loyalist Township will impose a total ban on the outdoor use of municipally-treated water throughout Amherstview, including the Brooklands and Harewood subdivisions. The ban will mean no filling of pools, watering of sod or trees, washing cars, or other outdoor use of municipal water, until the relining work has been completed and the Amherstview water tower has been put back in service. For more information and for weekly updates throughout the project, please visit the project's updates page.
For municipal water customers in Bath and Odessa, the usual seasonal outdoor water use restrictions will be in place.
Morden Crescent Reconstruction
Morden Crescent in Amherstview is undergoing replacement of watermains, sanitary sewers and laterals, culverts, new asphalt, and restoration of all disturbed surfaces.
The project was tendered in June 2017, with Amos Excavation being awarded the contract. The project, suspended during the winter months, will be completed in 2018. Throughout the project Morden Crescent is closed except to local traffic.
This project was made possible in part due to funding from the Ontario Community Infrastructure Fund.
