City begins leak detection program

North Bay, ON – October 31, 2016 – The City of North Bay has partnered with Water Mark Solutions to conduct a city-wide leak detection program.

Starting October 31, representatives from Water Mark Solutions will be in the City conducting tests to identify leaks and other deficiencies in the water system in an effort to reduce unaccounted-for water loss.  The majority of testing will be conducted on City property; however, there may be a need to connect to the property line valves of residences suspected of having a leak.

The testing is anticipated to take approximately 4 to 5 weeks to complete, and will take place between 10 p.m. and 6 a.m. daily. 

All Water Mark Solutions staff will be carrying photo identification and documentation.

Please direct any questions or concerns to the Public Works Department at 705-474-4340.
