Demolition of Old Water Tower Begins October 15

Demolition of the old water tower is scheduled to begin on Tuesday, October 15. Please take note of the following:

  *  The work will run from 7:00 am to 7:00 pm.
  *  Work days are Monday through Thursday, except for Thanksgiving Day.
  *  Demolition is projected to take 2 to 3 weeks.

A few residences in the Fort Hill area are still running on the tower’s water supply and will face an outage at some time. We will update the information and notify those residents when we know the time.

Please bookmark this post to watch for the most up-to-date information.


As mentioned in Council Meetings, research was completed by the Town Office in an effort to find a solution to save the water tower. However, our tower is made of lower-grade steel than those re-purposed in other communities in both Canada and the United States. Communities whose tower is made similar to our own also had to take down their towers.

Canal Beach: Season Ends Friday, September 13

The days are getting shorter and colder. Fall is on its way, and swimming season is coming to a close. 

Friday, September 13 will be the last day of the season for Canal Beach. When the gate closes Friday night the beach will be closed until Spring 2020.

Thank you for sharing your incredible pictures as you enjoyed the summer at Canal Beach. We look forward to more great times next year.

Be on the lookout for announcements as we make plans and apply for funding to make more improvements.

Brush Clearing for Granite Street Seniors

Thank you to Councillor Sterling Harris for taking the lead on clearing brush for the seniors housing on Granite Street. Thank you also to MLA Andrea Anderson-Mason and the crew from the Regional Development Corporation who did a wonderful job.

We also discussed further simple improvements to increase the usability and appearance of the land.

Canal Beach – Open for Swimming

While a blue-green algae advisory from 2008 remains in place for Lake Utopia, it is only an advisory and therefore Canal Beach is OPEN for swimming.

While the beach is open for swimming, it is not recommended that swimmers swallow the water and swim with open sores/wounds.

The Town of St. George, in cooperation with the Department of Environment and the Lake Utopia Preservation Association (LUPA), continues to monitor health limits of Lake Utopia.
