​​​​​​​​​​​Water Supply​

The Bradford/Bond Head drinking water system is categorized as a large municipal residential system. The Town is primarily serviced by two municipal groundwater wells, along with treated surface water from the Town of Innisfil.

The distribution system is comprised of two Standpipes positioned within the footprint of the Town. The Town is split up between two Zones: Zone 1 is comprised of groundwater and Zone 2 is strictly surface water supplied by the Town of Innisfil. One reservoir is located within the Town, which receives treated surface water from the Town of Innisfil.

​Chlorine is used as a disinfectant in both the groundwater and surface water treatment processes in order to ensure your water is protected from harmful bacteria and other microorganisms. Chlorine residuals are continuously monitored in the Town of BWG.​
