Media Release – June 22, 2022


June 22, 2022

In light of Algoma Public Health lifting their current water advisory on June 21, 2022, the Township of Macdonald, Meredith and Aberdeen Additional is still under an “essential water use only” order until test results indicate it is safe to draw from Lake George. The municipality continues to work in partnership with the Ministry of the Environment, Conservation and Parks (MECP) and the Ontario Clean Water Agency (OCWA) to manage the water crisis as a result of an oil spill that occurred on June 9th in the St Mary’s River. MECP and OCWA continue to conduct multiple water tests daily at both the water intake and the Environmental Centre in the village of Echo Bay. As public safety remains the top priority for the Township, testing will continue and all residents using town services in the village of Echo Bay are asked to continue to conserve water until test results indicate it is safe to begin drawing water from Lake George.
