Water Scammers Back in Fort Erie

MEDIA RELEASE (December 11, 2017) The Town of Fort Erie has received notice that once again water customers within the Region are being solicited by phone or door-to-door salespersons. Various tactics are being used in their attempts at pitching the sale of in-home water purification systems. These may include statements that the municipal tap water supply is unsafe.

These sales calls are neither endorsed nor commissioned by the Town of Fort Erie as municipal water continues to meet or exceed all Provincial Drinking Water Quality Objectives. Town Certified Licensed Drinking Water System Operators are available to discuss concerns regarding the safety of his/her drinking water supply. To discuss our water safety, please call 905-871-1600.

A copy of the Town of Fort Erie Annual Drinking Water Quality Report can be found at www.forterie.ca > Residents > Water & Wastewater Service.
