What you need to know about door to door water testing

Wednesday, March 9, 2011

As you may know Ontario water purification companies are using some questionable tactics to make people think their tap water is dirty. The Ministry of the Environment (MOE) also uncovered sales pitches laced with scary warnings to sell products that cost thousands of dollars.

To alert the public MOE worked with the Ministry of Consumer Services (MCS) on a web page called What You Need to Know About Door to Door Water Testing. It’s running in the spotlight panel of the MCS website this week. In addition, this posting, based on a vignette in the 2008-2009 Chief’s Drinking Water Inspector Report, will continue to appear on MCS’ homes and door to door web pages.
