Wawanesa, MB (CKLQ) - A notice issued last week by the Municipality of Oakland-Wawanesa is asking residents to discontinue unnecessary water uses.

Those uses include fountains, jets, hoses and sprinklers.

The restrictions are voluntary at this point, as a precautionary measure, until the river level increases.

The voluntary ban could be in place for the rest of the summer, if conditions remain hot and dry.
