Chlorine in your Water
The Gananoque James W. King Drinking Water System meets all water quality standards. In accordance with the Ontario Safe Drinking Water Act, chlorine is added as a primary disinfectant during the water purification process to ensure our tap water is safe by eliminating microorganisms, such as bacteria and viruses, and other pathogens. The addition of chlorine is recognized and approved for use in drinking water systems in Ontario and has greatly reduced the risk of waterborne diseases and illnesses.
