Water Testing

The City has begun to receive reports that residents are receiving phone calls stating that they need to schedule an appointment to have their drinking water tested.  As City Staff are not responsible for these phone calls, we believe that these calls may be coming from a sales company that wishes to gain access to the residence in order to try and sell a water treatment system.


Should any resident feel uncomfortable with a marketer's sales approach, they should contact the Ministry of Consumer Services (MCS). The City cannot contact the MCS to complain on a resident's behalf; the resident that was approached by the company must make the complaint before the MCS will investigate. Their contact information is as follows:
