Halton Region has been made aware that residents are being approached by sales people who claim that the Government of Ontario has mandated that all residents are required to have a specific filtration device installed on their water supply.

It has been reported that sales people are also requesting access into residents’ homes to view their water systems.

There is currently no mandate, from the Ontario Government or Halton Region, requiring residents to install additional filtration equipment on their water systems.

“Residents are not required to install additional filtration systems in their homes,” said Jim Harnum, Halton Region’s Public Works Commissioner. “Our highly qualified and licensed staff perform regular testing to make sure we consistently meet or exceed provincial water quality standards.”

“Residents are not required to install additional filtration systems in their homes,” said Jim Harnum, Halton Region’s Public Works Commissioner.

Halton residents should be aware that any Regional employees required to visit a residence always carry Regional photo identification. Halton Region staff do not visit homes for the purpose of promoting or selling any water related products.
