Water Discolouration - Dutton Water Distribution Centre

The Municipality of Dutton Dunwich is aware of discoloured municipal water being detected by some residents around the Iona area.
 
This discoloured water is being caused by elevated concentrations of manganese and iron in Lake Erie. Manganese and iron are naturally occurring minerals present in source water, and weather conditions can impact the concentration of these minerals in the Lake.
 
During the past few days these water issues have been occurring all along this stretch of the lake Erie shore lines and as the the Municipality draws the majority of our water from Southwold we were anticipating this situation. We have received updates from OCWA West Elgin who have indicated the lake has improved considerably and we expect the discolouration to dissipate within the next day or two. As the conditions improve, the distribution systems will be flushed of the discoloured water and a return to normal colour.
 
Please note, that although unpleasant, the discolouration is an aesthetic issue only. The water is regularly tested by our drinking water operators and meets the provincial drinking water regulations set out by the Ministry of the Environment, Conservation, and Parks (MECP). Operational changes have now been made to help alleviate the effects, and weather conditions have improved and continued to be monitored.
