MECP District Office in Peterborough now on board with problem. Received 2022 Chloride level of 12.5 mg/L showing a reduction in chlorides. Will be reviewing further with MECP and also with MTO. Appears that perhaps the wetted salt usage has reduced levels of chlorides. More monitoring definitely required plus lots of dialogue.

Mike Grinnell has closed this issue.
MECP has reviewed quite thoroughly and agrees that monitoring by their labs under the Lake Partner program will continue. They also agreed that I continue to work with the MTO in stressing the importance of the MTO following the salt management program and managing their contractor who spreads the salt and is responsible for equipment calibration. This is not an abatement issue but requires working with the MTO to improve any issues. I was asked to keep the MECP updated as necessary and to contact them any time I wanted.

I have also obtained and will be evaluating chloride test strips throughout this season and will report to Water Rangers and their usefulness at the season’s end. Some good news, the MECP told me today that chloride levels are generally coming down across the province.
