Notice of implementation of cross connection control program to protect the safety of drinking water


Take Notice that on January 23, 2012 the Council of the Corporation of the Town of Amherstburg passed a by-law for the purpose of implementing a Cross Connection Control Program.

The purpose of the Cross Connection Control Program is to minimize the possibility of contaminants entering the plumbing systems within buildings and subsequently, entering the municipal drinking water supply. 

The Cross Connection Control Program encompasses all Industrial, Commercial and Institutional properties as well as large multi-residential buildings. 

A Municipal Building Official will be conducting a survey of the plumbing systems within all Industrial, Commercial and Institutional properties as well as large multi-residential buildings during normal business hours to determine what steps, if any, are required to bring each property into compliance with the new by-law.  The Building Official will inform each property owner in writing of the required action along with a reasonable amount of time to complete the work.

Each municipality has a duty of care to provide safe drinking water to its residents.  Protecting drinking water quality is a top priority. The Cross Connection Control Program is a means of fulfilling this responsibility by reducing the possibility of the contamination of our drinking water.
