Water Usage Update: The Village council would like residents in odd number houses to water on Sunday, Tuesday and Thursdays for an hour period and for the even number houses to water on Monday, Wednesday and Saturday. If you have questions, please contact the office.
The Village of Kenaston has had an issue with a large usage of water and the lift stations have been in high demand of keeping up with the high water usage. The Village has had 2 leak detection contractors come and check the water lines for leaks. They have found no leaks so we are unsure as to where extra water may be going. When Reverse Osmosis water is made, 40 % (as per engineers) is waste water. So every gallon of water made, produces waste water. This means, all water provided to homes whether it is for your house or your yard, it makes reverse osmosis water and in turn, makes waste water that goes in to the sewer. We are limiting the water usage only to limit the amount of waste water. This will help with the pressure on the lift stations for a period of time to determine if we can find someone that can help the village with the water usage situation.
The Village foreman will be placing flags on all the residential water curb stops. These flags will be markings used by a student engineer in the coming months. Please refrain from removing these flags. The foreman/student will remove them once the process is complete. Thank you for your patience while we update our services for future efficiencies. If you have any questions, please contact the office.

The Council of the R.M. of McCraney #282 has received several complaints regarding the Loraas Garbage Bins located behind the R.M. shop.
There havebeen many instances of ratepayers from other municipalities using the McCraney garbage bins, as well as individuals continuing to overload the bins, dropping their garbage outside of the overfull bins, and not closing the lids. All of this has been attracting stray cats and birds that are constantly dragging garbage out of the bins which has caused an unsightly and environmental problem behind the R.M. Shop.
For the above reasons, we are notifying you that both the Loraas garbage bins and recycling bin will now have locks on them effective immediately.
Due to the extreme dry conditions, the Village of Kenaston council asks that all residents be cautious when burning any type of fire within the Village of Kenaston limits. Thank you for your attention in this matter.
The Fire Ban for the RM has been lifted - June 24th, 2019

On any block and in any neighbourhood, it only takes one house that is harbouring illegal activities to undermine the safety of all residents of that community and affect the property values throughout that neighbourhood.
The Safer Communities and Neighbourhoods Act is intended to empower residents to take back their neighbourhoods by reporting problem residences or businesses that are habitually used for illegal activities. These activities could include drugs, prostitution, gang or criminal activities, child sexual abuse or the unlawful sale or consumption of alcohol. (See Link)
