The temporary switch to free chlorine includes the Municipality of Leamington, Town of Kingsville and parts of the Town of Essex and Town of Lakeshore. This temporary change in the treatment system is to facilitate a long term maintenance program on the system and to control bacterial re-growth within the distribution system.
Free Chlorine disinfection is one of the Ministry of Environment’s approved method for drinking water disinfection in Ontario and is one of the most widely-used processes in North America.
