Middle of August before clean water in Walkerton

It's likely to be the middle of next month before clean water is flowing from taps in Walkerton once again.

The cleanup of the town's water supply continues and is at the midway mark.

All of the plumbing in every home is being disinfected and then tested to see if it's free of the e-coli bacteria. Residents are still boiling their water just to be safe.

At least seven people died in May after drinking contaminated water.
