ENWIN Utilities Ltd. will reintroduce fluoride into the local drinking water systems for Windsor, Tecumseh and LaSalle, effective January 12th, 2022.

Windsor City Council approved the reintroduction on Monday, March 25th, 2019.

The fluoride implementation follows the completion of extensive tests recommended by Jacobs Engineering (Jacobs), including a treatability assessment, a review of fluoride additives, as well as a study using WUC’s pipe test loop to ensure no adverse effects to WUC’s corrosion control program.

“We completed the pipe loop testing, as anticipated in 2021, but experienced a minor setback in the implementation due to supply chain issues related to COVID-19,” commented Garry Rossi, VP Water Operations. “We have now resolved that issue, and our team is poised to begin introducing fluoride.”

ENWIN will continue to monitor the pipe loop after the implementation to ensure pilot data is consistent with actual drinking water system sample results and collect further seasonal data.

“We are dedicated to ensuring the water we provide is safe and reliable,” commented ENWIN President & CEO Helga Reidel. “We have received a 100% rating on our annual audit by the Ministry for the last ten years, and we want to ensure we maintain our consistently high standards.”
