Walkerton must replace pipes

The town of Walkerton has been ordered to replace three-and-a-half kilometres of water pipes, and it has to be done within seven weeks.

Keith West is with the Ministry of the Environment. He says the pipes can't been disinfected.

It'll cost around $275,000 to replaces the pipes.

All the plumbing in every building in Walkerton is being disinfected to make sure they're free of E. coli bacteria.
