  • During the power outage scheduled by Hydro One for Synergy North customers on Sunday, September 15, 2019, there will be changes to City services as follows:

Transfer Station
Accepting CASH ONLY and multiple loads will be pro-rated.
Open 8:30 am - 4 p.m.

Kenora Recreation Centre & Keewatin Memorial Arena
Opening at 1:00 p.m. or when power is restored.

Lake of the Woods Discovery Centre

Water and Wastewater Services
Limit use of toilets, showers, and sinks.

The City of Kenora water treatment plant and wastewater plant are equipped with back-up generators allowing for continued water distribution and wastewater service during a power outage.

However, there are 64 pumping stations pushing wastewater into the system from varying elevations within the City. Unlike both treatment plants, not all pumping stations are equipped with back-up generators; therefore, during a power outage for such a long period, a number of pumping stations will be without power and will have limited capacity to receive and carry away wastewater.

If residents in these areas continue to use water without restraint (flushing toilets or bathing etc.) the pumping station can become overwhelmed with wastewater. Should this occur, there is a risk of sewage backing up into basements and homes. This may also result in sewer overflow or spills from the stations into the environment. Reducing water consumption on Sunday will greatly reduce the chance of these events occurring.

City staff will closely monitor the pumping stations and wastewater treatment plant until the power has been restored. If you experience sewer backup or other water issues during the power outage, please call 807-466-1290.

For after-hours emergencies, call 807-467-2080 or email service@kenora.ca.

  • Be #bearwise 🐻🐻🐻There have been a high number of bear sightings in Kenora, specifically the Lakeside area. 
Bears are looking for food. 
Visit www.ontario.ca/bearwise for tips to make your property less attractive to bears, and then get your neighbourhood on board. 🐻🐻🐻
Reposted from Ontario Ministry of Natural Resources and Forestry Facebook page. .........
Don’t give bears a seat at the table. If bears learn they can find food where people live, they keep coming back and may try to enter buildings.

Ensure your property is free of attractants such as garbage, bird feeders, fruit, dirty BBQs, and pet food.
