Notice: Temporary Odor and Taste in Tap Water

Fairview Public Works, we are committed to providing our community with safe and clean tap water. We would like to inform you that we are currently aware of a temporary earthy odor and a slight taste in our tap water. We understand that this may cause some concern, but we want to assure you that our water undergoes daily testing to ensure it meets all regulatory compliance standards and is safe for consumption.

As part of our commitment to public health and safety, our dedicated team of experts conducts rigorous testing on our tap water regularly.  The earthy odor and slight taste that you may have noticed in your tap water are temporary and do not pose any health risks. While these occurrences are uncommon, they can occasionally happen due to various factors, such as changes in the source water or environmental fluctuations.  To Minimize the impact you may run your water for a few minutes prior to use, this may help in the reduction of the odour. 

We apologize for any inconvenience caused by the temporary earthy odor and slight taste in our tap water. Your health and safety remain our highest priority, and we appreciate your understanding and cooperation during this time. We value open and transparent communication with our community.

We understand the importance of keeping you informed about any changes or issues related to your tap water. Rest assured that we are actively monitoring the situation and will provide updates, as necessary.
