EMO Argyle: Help For Argyle Residents Facing Water Issues

August 14, 2018

With water levels declining and no sign of heavy precipitation in the forecast, EMO Argyle is reminding residents to keep an eye on their neighbors, especially those living alone or most vulnerable, and will be assisting residents with resources and options for those that are significantly affected.

Beginning on Monday, August 20th, EMO Argyle will be providing the following assistance:

Drinking Water

The Municipality has a supply of 4L jugs of drinking water to be given to residents. There is a 16L limit per household per pickup. Pick up locations are as follows:

  • Carl’s Store, Tusket
  • La Shoppe à Carl, Wedgeport
  • Co-op De La Tour, Lower West Pubnico

Please note that residents will be required to give their name, phone number and civic address before receiving the water.

Water Delivery

Through its Public Works Department, the Municipality will take requests for water delivery for those with mobility, transportation or medical issues. Those that require this service can call (902) 648-2623 or request the service through Homecare or the Senior Safety Coordinator.

Water Sources

Non-drinking water is available to the public to fill small or large containers at the Mariners Centre - 45 Jody Shelley Drive, Yarmouth. Future consideration for other water sources will be determined as needed.

Compiling List of Those with Issues

The Municipality urges its residents to continue updating them on their situation so that they can get a clear picture of how many are affected by this dry summer, and what further actions may need to be taken. They appreciate all those that have offered to help in any way possible and encourage everyone to do the same.

For up to date information regarding EMO activity in the municipality, contact our EMO Coordinator Janine Muise at 902-648-2314 or visit the EMO Argyle Facebook Page. For more information on being prepared for an emergency, please visit the provincial EMO website at http://novascotia.ca/dma/emo/

Well and Drinking Water Safety

If your well has run dry, there are a few things you need to know to ensure you have safe drinking water. During a water shortage, everyone should do his/her part to conserve water and ensure their drinking water and water in general is safe.

Active Transportation Plan

Here is the final Active Transportation Plan for the Municipality of the District of Argyle. Its purpose is to plan a path for improving active transportation in the Municipality. It is the culmination of several months of work with the community.

Beginning in early 2016, the Municipality of the District of Argyle, along with a group of planners from UPLAND, worked together to identify a variety of innovative and tangible ideas to help improve options for residents to use active modes of transportation for trips to work, school, shops, services, and for recreational purposes. More specifically, this plan aims to:

  • Increase active transportation use—including walking, running, biking and kayaking—in the Municipality;
  • Identify existing areas that need to be upgraded to increase Active Transportation;
  • Identify new opportunities for active transportation infrastructure that help people work and play;
  • Increase active transportation opportunities in areas such as schools and business hubs of the Municipality;
  • Identify links to Provincial Blue Route cycling initiative;
  • Provide a 10 – 15 year implementation strategy that identifies priorities, best practices for behavioural changes, and decision making processes.

Municipal Administration Building

The current condition of our administrative building has been a source of conversation for some time. In 1998, an initial study was made on the building and there were improvements made as a result. At the same time, Council of the day decided to put $100,000 aside each year, expecting a larger project would be required in the future.

This project is one of nine on our long term capital plan.
