SPRING CLEANUP WEEKEND !!!

TOWN OF ASQUITH RESIDENTS ONLY

SATURDAY, MAY 7TH, AND SUNDAY, MAY 8TH, 2022

9:00 am TO 3:00 pm

On Saturday, May 7th and Sunday, May 8th, 2022, there will be bins situated at the corner of South Avenue and Charles Street that will be fenced and supervised. Residents of the Town of Asquith can use these bins to dispose of large dimensional waste (i.e. couches, mattresses, etc.) Demolition or renovation waste such as shingles or siding will not be accepted, and it is suggested that individuals should arrange for their own bins if they have this kind of waste.

BN Metals will also have a bin there for white metals (washers, dryers, fridges, etc.) The doors should be pulled off these. Also, batteries, BBQ’s, bikes, chairs with metal, couches with metal, electronics, lawn mowers, old tools, swing sets, tin, wire, or anything metal will be accepted.

This site will be supervised and is for Town of Asquith residents ONLY!!

On Saturday, the 7th and Sunday the 8th, the old landfill will also be open for Clean Waste Days, so one can take their tree branches, leaves and clean wood there for drop off.

Drinking Water Quality and Compliance

Town Short Form – A Template for Annual Notice to Consumers

(Note: This short form may be used for communities or waterworks serving a population of less than 5000).

Introduction

The Water Security Agency and the Ministry of Environment requires that at least once each year waterworks owners provide notification to consumers of the quality of water produced and supplied as well as information on the performance of the waterworks in submitting samples as required by a Minister’s Order or Permit to Operate a waterworks. The following is a summary of the Town of Asquith water quality and sample submission compliance record for the 2021 time period. This report was completed on January 19, 2022. (must be completed before June 30 each year on a calendar year-based reporting frequency). Readers should refer to Water Security Agency’s Municipal Drinking Water Quality Monitoring Guidelines, June 2015, EPB 502 for more information on minimum sample submission requirements and the meaning of type of sample. Permit requirements for a specific waterworks may require more sampling than outlined in the department’s monitoring guidelines. If consumers need more information on the nature and significance of specific water tests, for example, “what is the significance of Selenium in a water supply”, more detailed information is available from: http://www.hc-sc.gc.ca/ewh-semt/pubs/water-eau/index_e.html .

Chemical – Health Category

All waterworks serving less than 5000 persons are required to submit water samples for SE’s Chemical Health category once every 2 years. The Chemical Health category includes analysis for arsenic, barium, boron, cadmium, chromium, fluoride, lead, nitrate, selenium and uranium.

 

The last sample for Chemical Health analysis was submitted on (February 26, 2021). Sample results indicated that the provincial drinking water quality standards were not exceeded.

The General Chemical category includes analysis for alkalinity, bicarbonate, calcium, carbonate, chloride, conductivity, hardness (as CaCO3), magnesium, sodium, sulphate and total dissolved solids.

 

The last sample for General Chemical analysis was required in 2021 and submitted on February 26, 2021. Sample results indicated that there were no exceedences of the provincial aesthetic objectives for the General Chemical category.

 

*Objectives apply to certain characteristics of or substances found in water for human consumptive or hygienic use. The presence of these substances will affect the acceptance of water by consumers and/or interfere with the practice of supplying good quality water. Compliance with drinking water aesthetic objectives is not mandatory as these objectives are in the range where they do not constitute a health hazards. The aesthetic objectives for several parameters (including hardness as CaCO3, magnesium, sodium and total dissolved solids) consider regional differences in drinking water sources and quality.
