The Union Water Supply System (UWSS) has been monitoring the chemical spill that occurred in East Palestine, Ohio in early February 2023. The UWSS is continuing to assess the situation and should a need occur the UWSS would implement its Risk Management and Contingency Plans to mitigate any impacts on our drinking water system. The UWSS also participates in a number of research and monitoring projects on both the Canadian and US side of Lake Erie to ensure that our drinking water remains unaffected by this spill.
