Advisory for Wainfleet, Ontario
[Return to Ontario | Return to province list]
Niagara Region Public Health reminds residents
the boil water advisory, issued on April 10, 2006, remains in effect.
The initial advisory was issued after extensive consultation
with a panel of national, medical and technical experts, and receiving advice
from the Chief Medical Officer of Health of Ontario.
This advisory applies to all properties located
in the area south of the Trans Canada Trail (former CN railway)
and extending to the Lake Erie shoreline in the Township of Wainfleet.
Significant bacterial contamination exists
in the groundwater source for private and communal wells in that area.
Individuals drawing drinking water from a well using
this groundwater source remain at a significant health risk.
