Water in Windsor and the Pressure Reduction Valve (PRV) Project
The water pressure in the town of Windsor has been above-average for many years which contributes to unnecessary pressure on the aging infrastructure and causes leaks & breaks (which wastes cleaning drinking water and costs the Town (tax payers) a lot of money in repairs. The Pressure Reduction Valve (PRV) project was raised a couple of years ago and included in this year's budget and has been operational for a few months now.
Windsor's water pressure has been an average of 85-87 psi and the national average is approximately 45-60 psi. Even with the PRV implementation, Windsor's water pressure is still above-average at about 67 psi. The pressure reduction should increase the life expectancy of not only the town's infrastructure but also your household plumbing and appliances (hot water heaters, dishwashers, washing machines, etc). 30% of the water used in households is heated; therefore, reducing the amount of water used will reduce energy consumption.

Crosswalk Flags - Have you seen them in town?
You may have noticed some bright orange small flags in containers attached to poles at a couple of crosswalks in town (King @ Albert and King @ Stannus/O'Brien). Windsor Traffic Authority has agreed to piloting the crosswalk flag project sponsored by the Cocoa Pesto Restaurant.
Here's what they're about...
When about to cross a street, take a flag, continue to be observant and make eye-contact with approaching vehicles, once safe, hold the flag in front of you and cross the crosswalk. Once across, place the flag in the container on the other side. This helps pedestrians be more visible and has been successful in other Nova Scotia communities! It's one added step to safety.
NOTE: These flags do not mean to be less-observant. PLEASE continue to be vigilant when crossing the street.
