UXBRIDGE:The Region of Durham is going to be doing an environmental assessment in Uxbridge, to find an additional water supply to service the urban area.
The Township is currently supplied by three municipal wells and the Region is looking to establish a fourth well, to support future development in the area.
Mayor Gerri Lynn O’Connor explained that the Township has had lots of water in their three wells up to now, but added that the addition of a fourth well would help if they ever have a spring or summer with light or no rain.
“Uxbridge sits on a lake so there is lots of water here,” Mayor O’Connor said.
Those who wish to provide input on the study can contact Ms. Beata
