Port to hold chlorine meeting

  • Sep. 10, 2010 4:00 p.m.

Port Clements residents will get the chance to find out more about why chlorine is being added to the village’s water system at a public meeting Tuesday (Sept. 14). At least two officials from Northern Health will be at the meeting, said village administrator Heather Nelson-Smith. They will be making a short presentation about chlorine, sharing the results of the latest water tests, and then answering questions. The meeting is being held at the request of many Port residents, who signed a petition earlier this summer demanding more information about Northern Health’s chlorination order. Until a couple of months ago, Port had never treated its water with chlorine. However, inconsistent water test results this spring resulted in a boil water advisory which was not lifted until the village started chlorination. The meeting will be held in the seniors room at the multipurpose building, starting at 7 pm on Sept. 14.
