NEW for 2018, The City of Sarnia is implementing Safe Water Compliance, known as the Backflow Prevention Program. Commercial property owners can expect letters and notices from the City about the program, but we can also answer your questions. Pete’s Plumbing and Design owner Jamie Coenjarts is fully licensed and registered by the City to perform the survey as well as test, install and repair any backflow devices.

The City of Sarnia delivers safe and clean drinking water to residents through a system of watermains, known as the Municipal Drinking Water System. The Safe Drinking Water Act and the regulations of the Ontario Ministry of the Environment and Climate Change (MOECC) requires that the City of Sarnia provide safe drinking water to all residents.

In order to keep the drinking water safe and protect public health, the City is developing a proactive plan to prevent contamination of the drinking water system from backflow. The plan includes creating a Backflow Prevention Program and passing a Backflow Prevention By-Law.

Please don’t hesitate to contact us today if you need further assistance as the new program gets under way.
