Water Conservation


The Town of Marystown is urging residents and businesses to conserve water effective immediately. Without the cooperation of all residents and businesses, the Town may be forced to implement further restrictions.

Marine Industrial Park

The Town of Marystown has developed a new Marine Industrial Park in the Power’s Cove area, boasting 15 large fully-serviced lots (lots can be subdivided to meet individual needs) with plans for a laydown area and 1,000 foot wharf.  Because of its ideal location – a well-sheltered, ice-free, deepwater harbour - this Marine Industrial Park is well-suited to take advantage of the opportunities in the supply and service sector, specifically oil/gas, fabrication and manufacturing.

A Marketing Plan is now being developed to hilight the attributes and benefits of the park.  This information will be posted via a web link once it is available.

For more information on the Marine Industrial Park or to view a lot, please contact the CAO at 709-279-1661, ext. 227 or email info@townofmarystown.ca.
