District Seeks Input On Drinking Water Access in Gravenhurst

Posted: 2018-05-23 06:36:46 By: hbr

The District of Muskoka is seeking public input to determine if a another public water tap is required after the District removed a public access water tap from Wapaska Drive in Gravenhurst.  
The District says it was removed last August when it was determined that the tap posed a potential contamination hazard.  
There are currently two taps that remain available for the public to access free of charge for safe drinking water in Gravenhurst.  These are located at the Library and at the Pavilion, and are available and easily accessible to all residents and visitors to the area.
Fred Jahn, Commissioner of Engineering and Public Works for the District of Muskoka says “Our Water and Wastewater staff are presently assessing the need for reinstalling a third tap that would meet the required standards.”
