Update on Identified Issues in Water System

The Town of Torbay would like to provide residents on Town water services with the following update on our current water issues within our water system. As per previous updates we have identified the organisms as phantom midges, and they are not harmful to residents.

Over the past few days our water technicians have been taking samples from different areas around Town and there as been no further sightings of the phantom midges. This maybe a sign that their life cycle as passed, and they are gone for now. We are continuing to work with government departments and our engineering consultant to determine the reason for there presence and how best to ensure that they do not show up again our system.

The Town is committed to finding a solution and providing safe drinking water to it residents. As more information becomes available it will be shared with residents. Any questions or concerns can be directed to publicworks@torbay.ca
