The City of Clarence-Rockland has sent out an advisory assuring residents that as of this morning, the quality of municipal drinking water has not been affected, despite reports of fish die-off, which has been observed along the Ottawa River during the past few days.
The Ontario Ministry of the Environment, Conservation and Parks has collected fish and water samples for analysis and will inform the City of the results once they are available.
The Ontario Clean Water Agency (OCWA), which manages the City’s drinking water treatment plant, is constantly monitoring the water quality as part of its daily operations and has not detected any difference in the quality of water except for a change in temperature.
