Residents should be on alert for door-to-door water filter salespeople claiming that the Town’s water requires additional filtration due to high levels of chlorine. This is false. The Ministry of the Environment and Climate Change (MOECC) recently conducted its annual inspection on the Town of Fort Erie’s water system. Following its inspection, the MOECC reported that the Town’s drinking water continues to meet all legislated Provincial Drinking Water Quality Objectives. A copy of the report can be found at www.forterie.ca
The salespeople are also offering free water filters and asking to have access to the residents’ bathrooms, water lines and water meters. If a door-to-door salesperson comes to your door, do not provide any bills, contracts or statements. Concerned residents should politely ask the salespeople to leave and contact police if the salespeople become aggressive.
