Volunteers sought for CBRM water sampling program
July 7, 2021
SYDNEY, NS - The CBRM Water Utility is seeking volunteers for lead and copper sampling in residential tap water. The program is for customers of the CBRM Water Utility and is not for those whose water source is a well.
The Water Utility routinely monitors water quality within distribution systems. Last year, Nova Scotia Environment introduced additional sampling requirements for lead and copper within customers’ homes.
This sampling program will be provided free of charge to a limited number of customers in each CBRM distribution system (Sydney, Glace Bay, Northside, New Waterford, Louisbourg, Floral Heights and Centreville). Participants will be registered on a first come first serve basis until the program goals are met.
Customers can apply online at www.cbrm.ns.ca/water-utility
This water sampling will determine if lead and copper are present in customers’ tap water and a results letter will be provided.
