As the heat continues to ravage the Ottawa Valley, water restrictions have been put in place by the City of Pembroke. 

All residents are asked to keep water for essentials and to refrain from watering lawns, gardens and other activities until further notice. 

The hot and humid weather makes it more difficult to produce treated water, according to the City. 

Anyone violating the restrcitions could face a fine from the City's by-law department.
