Notice - Door to door sales people in Stayner selling water purification devices

*Update: This also applies to Creemore, as of October 16th, 2015.

Please remember that door to door sales people do not represent the Township of Clearview. If someone approaches you to do a free drinking water test, keep in mind that this could be a tactic to sell a water purification device. While selling water treatment devices is not a crime, improper testing of drinking water can be.

Clearview Township’s Water & Sewer department takes thousands of samples every year to ensure your drinking water is safe to consume. In some rare instances Township employees may ask to enter your home to take water samples. In this case staff will produce appropriate identification. Water & Sewer department staff are trained properly to collect water samples and will properly transfer samples for testing to the Ministry accredited and licenced laboratory. If there are any problems with the water the Township will inform the Simcoe Muskoka District Health Unit, the Ministry of the Environment and affected customers right away.
