Door-to-Door Water Testing not Affiliated with the Municipality of Meaford

Meaford, Ontario – December 7, 2015 – Municipal staff has been made aware that several residents have been visited by representatives offering free water testing. The individuals claim to be testing the quality of the water, looking for contaminants, and may claim to be affiliated with the Municipality of Meaford or participating in water main replacements or repairs. They will then offer to sell a purification system to the homeowner to clear the tap water of contaminants or toxins.

These individuals are not affiliated with the Municipality of Meaford. Our municipal water treatment and distribution operations are legislated and tested regularly under strict Ministry Guidelines through O. Reg. 170/03. All of this reporting is made available to the Public via our Annual Summary Reports.

The Municipality of Meaford has not endorsed this company, these products, or their sales tactics and are not working with any companies providing these types of services.
