PUBLIC NOTICE:Water Utility Cross-Connection Control Program

In order to continue to provide our residents with safe, clean drinking water, the Town of Antigonish is implementing a Cross Connection Control Program for our Water Utility.

The purpose of this program is to protect residents of the Town of Antigonish and other Utility users from contaminants that may enter the water system through cross-connections or backflow. “What we are trying to do,” explains Chief Administrative Officer, Jeff Lawrence, “is prevent potentially harmful materials from inadvertently coming into contact with the public water supply.” The provisions for the program are outlined in the Nova Scotia Utility and Review Board’s Schedule of Rules and Regulations and are a regulatory requirement of our Water Utility by the Department of Environment and the National Building Code.
