Monte McNaughton says he’s committed to the promised health hazard investigation into contaminated water wells in Chatham-Kent.
The Lambton-Kent-Middlesex MPP says it was a government commitment and things are moving forward.
“The RFP process is happening as we speak to hire an independent company to do the water well testing,” McNaughton says. “This is an independent body, five scientists including a local geologist.”
McNaughton says as many as 200 home owners should be contacted in the next four months.
The government first announced it would be launching a health hazard investigation last July, but residents who’ve been dealing with dirty well water for years say they haven’t heard a peep since then.
