Within the Municipality of Charlton and Dack there is one Water Treatment Plant and three distinct water distribution systems. One system serves the Town of Charlton, one system services the Bradley Subdivision and one system services the Clarksville Subdivision.

The Water Treatment facility in Charlton is operated under an agreement with the Ontario Clean Water Agency (OCWA). The testing for all three areas is also managed under an agreement with OCWA. The distribution systems for Charlton and Bradley are owned, managed and maintained by the Municipality while Clarksville residents own and maintain their own distribution system.


Charlton Water Treatment Plant

The Charlton Water Supply System is owned by the Corporation of the Municipality of Charlton and Dack and is operated by the Ontario Clean Water Agency (OCWA). It is a surface water system that serves the residents of Charlton. The plant is located on the west bank of the Englehart River on Bay Street in the Town of Charlton. This is a stand alone system not connected to any other drinking water systems.

The Charlton Water Supply System is classified as a Large Municipal Residential Drinking Water System which serves a population of approximately 250 residents through an estimated 110 service connections. The raw water source for the treatment plant is the Englehart River.


Bradley

The Bradley Subdivision distribution system is a stand alone system that was constructed in the early 1980's by a private developer. It is operated by the Ontario Clean Water Agency  (OCWA).

The system connects to and receives all water from the drinking water system owned by the Town of Englehart. The Englehart well supply is communal ground water that services the Town of Englehart and six neighbouring distribution systems. The Englehart system is operated by the Ontario Clean Water Agency (OCWA).

Based on the number of residential service connections, 17, in this distribution system, the Bradley Subdivision Distribution System is classified as a small municipal residential water system which gets its water from a confined aquifer found just above the bedrock at a depth of 80m.


Clarksville

The Clarksville Subdivision distribution system is a standalone system directly adjacent to the northwest boundary of the Town of Englehart. The system was constructed in the early 1950's by a private developer, with ownership of the system being assumed by each property owner in the subdivision. In 2016 the Water Distribution System was assumed by the Municipality of Charlton and Dack and amalgamated with the Bradley Water Distribution System. The distribution system consists of fifteen (15) residential and at least three (3) non residential connections.

The system connects to and receives all water from the drinking water system owned by the Town  of Englehart. The Englehart well supply is communal ground water that services the Town of Englehart and six neighbouring distribution systems. The Englehart system is operated by the Ontario Clean Water Agency (OCWA).


Operational Plan for the Charlton and Bradley Water Systems

The Municipality of Charlton and Dack’s Drinking Water Quality Environmental and Management System Operational Plan (DWQMS) is part of our effort to ensure clean, safe and reliable drinking water is supplied to all customers served by the Charlton drinking water system and the Bradley Subdivision distribution system (supplied by the Englehart Drinking Treatment System).  The development and continual improvement of the plan will help to ensure all regulatory requirements are met and consumers can be confident that their drinking water will be protected.  

The Operational Plan is available for public viewing at the Charlton and Dack Municipal Office, #287237 Sprucegrove Road, Englehart or by clicking on the link or below.
