The Town of Lunenburg’s Water Utility would like to advise its customers that the contractor working on the Dufferin Street construction project will require an interruption in your water service in order to install a new valve at the intersection of Dufferin and High Streets. Water Utility customers along Dufferin Street (Sandy Hollow Road to Tupper Street), Tupper Street (Broad to Dufferin Streets) and Broad Street (McDonald to Tupper Streets), Maple Avenue and Sandy Hollow Road will be without their water service on Tuesday, August 23, 2016 starting at 8:00 am until 6:00 pm.
Residents and businesses are requested to close their main water valves prior to this interruption in service to prevent possible damage to appliances. This work will cause discoloured water when the water service is restored and you are requested to flush the plumbing in your home or business through a cold water tap prior to normal use.
The Town of Lunenburg Water Utility apologizes to our customers for any inconveniences.

The popular Hinterland Who's Who public service announcements were recently filmed in the Lunenburg area.
The Atlantic Cod and Right Whale are now two local species which will be featured in a series of PSAs filmed this summer and airing in 2017 in time for Canada's 150th birthday. The Grizzly and Canada Lynx are two other focuses of the nationwide series.
First created in 1963, Hinterlands Who's Who was relaunched in 2003 to "rebuild the connection" audiences made through the original series. It presents interesting facts about the wildlife and this series of PSAs will also detail their impact on Canada's history and culture.
The videos will be made available in four formats - a four-minute web video, a 30-second video for the public, and a 30-second and 15-second video for children.

This port town is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Yeah, that’s a big deal. By day, the crayon-coloured houses along the water will make you smile, and by night you’ll watch lights bounce off the water like shooting stars. Art galleries are plentiful, so take home a canvas.
