Bottled water distribution to continue in Mississippi Mills until Fall 2018

By Ted Raymond, CFRA News, November 23, 2016

Residents in Mississippi Mills, whose groundwater was contaminated by chemicals traced back to the National Fire Laboratory, will be getting bottled water from the National Research Council until at least the fall of 2018.

NRC Spokesperson Charles Drouin tells CFRA that seasonal testing on the groundwater is ongoing.

“We’ve committed to continue doing that through the fall of 2018,” Drouin says. “That means we will continue to provide bottled water to residents who have requested it, and provide maintenance on the filtration systems that we’ve provided for the duration of that sampling program.”
