Town of Stellarton Water Update

Water Sampling Plan (2021)

Almost annually, Stellarton experiences a period in which there may be a taste and odour change to residents’ water. Through third-party testing, we identified the presence of Geosmin and 2-Methylisoborneol (MIB) - two naturally occurring compounds—in our water supply. While these have had an impact on the taste and smell of the water, they are not toxic or harmful.

The Town’s Water Treatment Plant (WTP) has developed an extensive sampling plan for testing of Geosmin/Microcsyctin in June 2021. The goal of the sampling plan is to determine the exact period in time these compounds are present in the raw and treated water with additional testing for other compounds that can be present. Since conventional water treatment will not remove these compounds, the Town will use this data to explore treatment options.
