THE CORPORATION OF THE TOWN OF COCHRANE
NOTICE TO RESIDENTS - DOOR TO DOOR SALES AGENTS
Town staff wish to advise the public once again that the businesses going from door to door testing water have no affiliation with the Corporation of the Town of Cochrane. Some residents have advised that sales agents are claiming to be affiliated with the Town when presenting their identification. Others have reported the sales agents are informing them there are issues with water quality through the municipal drinking water system. If the Town of Cochrane staff would be at your residence they would present a Town of Cochrane identification badge and would be driving a Town of Cochrane vehicle. If you are unsure about who you are dealing with we wish to remind you it is the consumer’s right whether or not to allow these sales agents into their homes.
Town of Cochrane Water Operators conduct routine water quality testing. Sampling is done both from the plant and the public places in the distribution system to ensure safe, high quality drinking water to our residents. The samples also go through accredited labs and are regulated through the Ministry of Environment and Climate Change and the Porcupine Health Unit.
