Your Water

It's important to make sure that your water is safe for drinking. There are water test bottles available at the Township office. A sample can be dropped off at the Wellington-Dufferin-Guelph Public Health Unit in the morning.

Water samples are delivered by courier from the health unit offices to the London Regional Laboratory for testing. All results are mailed directly to the sampler. Results may also be obtained by recording the personal identification numbers on the water bottles and calling 1-877-723-3426, 72 hours after dropping off the samples at your local health unit.

Generally, private water supplies should be tested for nitrate and bacterial contamination annually. Otherwise, drinking water should be tested if:

  • You notice a change in your water quality.
  • People using the water suffer from an illness which may be waterborne.
  • There is a flood or large storm that may have carried contaminants to your wellhead.
  • Maintenance work is done on the well.
  • A pregnant woman, a woman anticipating pregnancy, or an infant under the age of six months becomes a water user.

To ensure safe drinking water, test regularly.
