Due to a significant drop in number of users, the Region of Queens Municipality would like to advise the public that distribution of bottled potable water from the Queens Ground Search and Rescue building in Brooklyn will be discontinued effective Sunday, January 15, 2017. Since September, the Region of Queens Municipality has worked in partnership with EMO Nova Scotia and local community businesses and community organizations (including Queens County Ground Search and Rescue) to distribute bottled potable water to those impacted by dry wells as a result of the drought this summer. Many of the wells are now back to normal as the water table has filled through the fall and winter’s precipitation. As a result, there have been very few residents picking up bottled water from the volunteers at Queens Ground Search and Rescue, and thus bottled water will not be given out after January 15.
The Region of Queens Municipality would like to advise the public that access to free potable drinking water from the Municipal well located in Liverpool, NS, will continue.
