The Town of Kirkland Lake is experiencing more blocked sewers
Did you know flushing personal care products down the toilet can lead to backups in your home, problems at our treatment facilities and can even cause sewage to overflow into our lakes and rivers? These products should be disposed of in the garbage. Check out this video from our water/wastewater operator, the Ontario Clean Water Agency (OCWA), and visit their idontflush.ca campaign website for more information.
TAKE NOTICE THAT the Corporation of the Town of Kirkland Lake has declared the following properties surplus and available to purchase. If you are interested in submitting an offer, please obtain a copy of “Proposal to Purchase” package at the Department of Physical Services located at 1 Dunfield Road, or contact the office at 705-567-9365.
The Town of Kirkland Lake has recently received discolored water complaints; we believe the majority of the discolored water occurrences to be intermittent occurrences that are due to the scouring of the pipes caused by the frost surrounding the distribution system. Some areas of town may be affected more than others.
Both the Town and OCWA have worked closely over the past couple of years to reduce the occurrences of discolored water, and significant improvements have been realized to date. Further plant improvements are being investigated and distribution system upgrade will continue.
Should you experience discolored water please let your cold water run until clear.
Your information and input is important to us in order to measure and assess each situation. We encourage affected consumers to contact the Department of Physical Services at 705-567-9365 or OCWA at 705-568-7392 for any questions or to report discolored water.
