On Friday April 22nd at 6:00 a.m. Charles Street North between Coopers Alley and Garden Street will be closed while the public works department repairs a sewer. The duration of the closure is unknown at this time.
The CRCA watershed received between 20 and 50 mm of rain over the last 3 days, much of it falling over the last 24 hours. This has resulted in increased creek flows and levels. Urban creeks are already peaking and larger rural creeks are expected to peak on the weekend resulting in typical spring time inundation.
Although rainfall has tapered off area lakes will continue to rise over the next few days. Area water managers are trying to pass the water through the watersheds as quickly as possible to minimize the flooding potential but caution that higher than average water levels are expected. As a result the public should expect increased flows through water control structures. Widespread flooding is NOT expected at this time.

Tenant or a Landlord?
Town of Gananoque upcoming change to our Water account system pertaining to Tenant applications. To address one of the more frequent complaints we receive from our towns landlords, being ultimately accountable for tenant utility accounts but not having access to them as the Privacy Act restricts being able to disclose this information.
To rectify this issue and allow for complete control of Utility accounts for landlords, effective of APRIL 1, 2016, we will no longer be accepting tenant applications for utility accounts. This will be grandfathered into effect and will not change or affect any existing tenant accounts. As old tenants move out, the accounts will be set up in the owner/landlords name.
With this change, it will not only allow you to have more control and access to your properties accounts, it will also help to cut down on administrative costs that should help to minimize any future increases to the water & sewer rates which ultimately means savings and less expenditure for the Town and its residents alike. If there are any questions, concerns, or any input please feel free to contact us and we will field and respond as best as we can.
