Possible Door-to-Door Scam Involving Water Testing and the Sale of Water Filter Systems

October 19, 2017

The Town of South Bruce Peninsula is warning residents of a possible door-to-door scam involving water testing and the sale of water filter systems. 

The Town does not test individual water systems without making an appointment with the resident first.  In the case of testing, the only authorized agent of the Town is the Ontario Clean Water Agency (OCWA).  Testing is not a regular occurrence; if you have any doubt about the identification of a person requesting to gain entry into your residence to obtain a water sample, call the Town office at 519-534-1400. 

The Town, through its service provider, provides residents with safe, clean water that meets or exceeds provincial standards.  The water is tested routinely as required by all public water providers and results are submitted to the province as required by legislation.  The quality of the water supplied to residents is of the utmost importance to the Town and all requirements are stringently met or exceeded. 

Door-to-door visits or sales regarding water products are not in any way endorsed by the Town.  The Town's drinking water is very safe. 

If you would like to enquire about the safety of your drinking water please contact:
