Outdoor Water Use By-law

Low rain fall in the spring has contributed to early drought conditions. It is recommended that businesses and residents reduce water consumption while the dry weather continues. 

Water may only be used outdoors from 6 a.m. to 10 a.m. and 6 p.m. to 10 p.m., and your address affects which days of the month you are permitted to use water outdoors. For more information about EG’s Outdoor Water Use By-law, visit our Water Conservation page.

Noise and Firearm Discharge By-law Updates

Share your thoughts on the proposed updates!

The Town of East Gwillimbury is undergoing a review of its Noise and Firearm Discharge By-laws. Proposed updates to the noise by-law include noise readings, aggregate site operation times, a new noise exemption process and more. The new Firearm Discharge By-law is focused on expanded mapping to outline urban non-discharge areas within the Town. Visit our by-law page for more information and to provide feedback!

Lymantria Dispar Dispar (LDD / Gypsy Moths)

Residents are encouraged to continue using burlap to wrap trees for the next few weeks. LDD’s have started to pupate, meaning that feeding has slowed/ will soon stop completely. Caterpillars will begin to form a brown cocoon on leaves or bark, using their hairs as protection. Visit our LDD: Protect Your Trees page for more information.
