To: All Residents of the Town of Smiths Falls
Due to a minor incident yesterday the Town shut down operations at the Water Treatment Plant in order to safeguard our drinking water system. The Town resumed operations at the Water Plant last evening and the system is now fully operational. The restriction of water usage is now lifted. It is important for all Town residents to be aware that the Town’s drinking water quality was never affected by this incident.
After consultation with the Medical Officer of Health, the beach and the splash pad have been re-opened for all to enjoy.
We thank everyone for their patience and cooperation.
