OCWA Receives Strong Inspection Report

Saugeen Shores | by John Divinski  

Saugeen Shores water system operator gets perfect report card for first time since 2015

100% is what everyone dreams of getting on a report card.

And that's exactly the score the Ontario Clean Water Agency (OCWA) got on a recent provincial inspection.

OCWA operates the Saugeen Shores Water Treatment System and in the past few years the inspection rating hasn't been so great, being as low as 90% in 2016 and 96% in 2017.

Last year, the rating came in at 100% with zero non-compliances reported by the Ministry of the Environment, Conservation and Parks.

Mayor Luke Charbonneau says it's great news to achieve a top mark for the water system operation.

Saugeen Shores Director of Infrastructure and Development, Amanda Froese says the result of the October inspection shows the continued commitment to the Safe Drinking Water System put forth by the OCWA staff and management.

The information report was presented to Saugeen Shores councillors on January 14th.

You may recall in the past, then Councillor Neil Menage challenged the OCWA report cards which resulted in the town offering a one-year contract to OCWA rather than the normal 5-year deal.

The last time the operator received a 100% compliance rating from the province was in 2015.
