Low levels of E. coli detected in the on-site water system at Chalk River Laboratories

Routine testing of the water system that supplies buildings at the Chalk River Laboratories (CRL) site has identified the presence of E. coli. While this water is not used for human consumption, as drinking water is provided via bottled dispenser stations, CNL has implemented water restrictions in certain buildings while it investigates the cause.

CNL has increased testing of the affected water system and is in contact with the Renfrew County District Health Unit for guidance to further understand the issue.

Though E.coli concentrations are relatively low, out of an abundance of caution CNL has also asked employees to take certain precautions while working on site until these water quality issues are resolved.

This issue is not related to radiological contamination and has no impact on the public or the environment.

Faibles concentrations d’E. coli détectées dans le réseau d’eau des Laboratoires de Chalk River

Des analyses de routine du réseau d’alimentation en eau des Laboratoires de Chalk River (LCR) ont permis de déceler la présence d’E. coli. Bien que cette eau ne soit pas utilisée pour la consommation humaine, comme l’eau potable est fournie par des stations de distribution en bouteille, les LNC ont mis en œuvre des restrictions d’eau dans certains bâtiments pendant qu’ils enquêtent sur la cause.

Les LNC ont intensifié les analyses du réseau d’alimentation en eau touché et communiquent avec le Service de santé du district du comté de Renfrew pour obtenir des conseils afin de mieux comprendre le problème.

Bien que les concentrations d’E.coli soient relativement faibles, les LNC ont également demandé aux employés de prendre certaines précautions lorsqu’ils travaillent sur place jusqu’à ce que ces problèmes de qualité de l’eau soient résolus.

Ce problème n’est pas lié à la contamination radiologique et n’a aucun impact sur le public ou l’environnement.

Canadian Nuclear Society's AnnCon 2024, you did not disappoint! CNL was thrilled to support, and our #teamCNS was keen to participate, share and make new connections! It’s exciting to see Canada’s nuclear industry continuing to grow its efforts, the impact of our collaborations and the spotlight on Saskatchewan!

Special thanks to Catherine Thiriet, Colin Charette, Shivam Pandey, Marat Seydaliev and John Cui for demonstrating CNL’s ever-growing R&D capabilities with their research presentations. And BIG congratulations to Andrew Toomey, David Gaunt, Jeffrey Fortin, and Kuwar Dalal on receiving this years' Canadian Nuclear Society Innovative Achievement Award (official announcement to come!), and CNL co-op student – Charles Liu, for winning the undergraduate category of the student poster competition!

#Shoutout to our Infrastructure team, and all those from across CNL who supported last week's annual Electrical Site Wide Shut Down. The annual shutdown provides CNL an opportunity to have internal and external trades complete inspections, testing, maintenance, and repairs on our electrical site infrastructure while minimizing disruption to the operations. The four-day outage window gives the team the time they need to access and complete a number of significant projects which ensure the reliability, safety and efficiency of the campus.

A big thank you to all those involved in the safe execution of this important outa#skilledtradesrades

The truck drivers including myself were more than happy to be able to support this. Job well done.

As a former employee, I recall year after year the team's exceptional effort on the annual electrical shutdown.
