St. Paul asking residents to avoid, restrict non-essential water usage

The Town of St. Paul is asking residents to avoid using water as much as possible due to the heavy rainfall the Lakeland has experienced in the past four days.

“We are asking residents to avoid and restrict all non-essential water usage at this time,” the Town said on their Facebook page.

“Water levels are reaching critical levels at the Waste Treatment Plant. Although the Town is able to keep up with the water levels for the moment, this is an evolving situation.”

St. Paul and Lac La Biche each have non-essential water usage advisories in place caused by heavy rain.
