100% Rating on Wellington North Water: 12th Consecutive Year

WELLINGTON NORTH – It is certainly safe to drink the water in Wellington North.

The Township of Wellington North has received a 100 percent rating for both the Arthur and Mount Forest Drinking water systems. This is the 12th year in a row they have achieved this rating.  

The inspection reports are provided to the Township by the MECP after a thorough onsite inspection of the Township’s water systems is conducted by a MECP Provincial Officer. The inspection considers both operational risk and compliance and is completed annually. The inspection report provides the MECP, Public Health and the system owner with a summarized quantitative measure of each Drinking Water System’s performance. The rating result is based out of 100 and is published in the Ministry’s Chief Drinking Water Inspections Annual Report.

Water and Sewer Supervisor for the Township Corey Schmidt says they are obviously happy with the results.

“The Township’s water and sewer team should be proud of this achievement. We have a professional water and sewer team that has delivered twelve consecutive years of top performance.”
