Spencerville Well Water Update

August 25, 2020

ATTN: Spencerville Residents

The Municipality, in coordination and cooperation with Ministry of Environment, Conservation and Parks (MECP) and the Leeds, Grenville and Lanark Health Unit, are working on gathering information and looking into possible sources of the poor water quality results for some of Spencerville’s private residential wells.

The Township performed camera work on the sewer mains on Charles and David Street area. The video revealed a couple defects on sewer lateral connections on Charles Street.  The Township has submitted for locates and is planning to make the repairs today. We are not sure if this is contributing to the poor water quality but want to eliminate them as a possible source.

On a temporary basis, we have made arrangements for residents in Spencerville who have received poor water results from the public health lab to obtain bottled water, at no charge, from either the Spencerville Fire station (6055 County Rd 44) from 8:00 am to 3:00 pm Monday to Friday or the Village Pantry during business hours. Alternatively, you can purchase bottled water and submit your receipt to the Township office for reimbursement.

We would appreciate if you would share your water test results with the Township. This can be done by bringing a copy to the township office or emailing the result to gshaw@twpec.ca and mail@twpec.ca

We will provide an update by the end of the week once we have more information and details. We appreciate your patience and understanding as we all work together in locating the cause of the poor water quality.
