Recent water quality testing has indicated that levels of sodium are elevated in this drinking water system. The Ontario Drinking Water Systems Regulation 170/03 requires that at least one water sample is taken every 60 months and tested for sodium. A report must be made to the local Medical Officer of Health when sodium levels in a drinking water system exceeds 20 mg/L. The elevated sodium levels are not likely to be harmful to a healthy person. However, persons with high blood pressure, sodium restricted diets, heart disease or kidney disease should discuss this notice with their health care provider. If you require any further information regarding the water quality or sample results, please contact the Ontario Clean Water Agency at (705) 429-2525. If you have questions regarding the health effects of sodium in drinking water,  please visit the health unit’s website or contact Health Connection and ask to speak with a public health inspector weekdays 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. at 705-721-7520 or 1-877-721-7520. 

Thank you for your cooperation.
