During the first week of August, the Town of Gander will begin using chloramines as a secondary disinfectant in the potable water supplied to consumers within the municipality. This change is intended to benefit consumers by reducing the levels of disinfection byproducts in the system, while still providing protection from waterborne disease. This pilot project is scheduled to run for a 6-week period. Testing and sampling will be ongoing to ensure proper water quality is maintained at all times and to determine the viability of chloramine use on a permanent basis.
The change to chloramines can affect persons dependent on dialysis machines. A condition known as hemolytic anemia can occur if the disinfectant is not completely removed from the water that is used for the dialysate. Consequently, the pretreatment scheme used for the dialysis units must include some means, such as a charcoal filter, for removing the chloramine prior to the project start date. Medical facilities should also determine if additional precautions are required for other medical equipment.
In addition, chloraminated water may be toxic to fish. If you have a fish tank, please make sure that the chemicals or filters that you are using are designed for use in water that has been treated with chloramines. You may also need to change the type of filter that you use for the fish tank.

To report an unmarked pot hole, please notify the Public Works Depot by telephone at 651-5938, or submit an online service request here.
Thank you for your assistance and cooperation.

The Town of Gander reminds residents that Garbage and Refuse Regulations require that household garbage be placed at the concrete curb no earlier than 6 a.m. and no later than 8 a.m. on your scheduled collection day. Household waste must be separated into two streams, with all recyclables placed in transparent blue bags and non-recyclable waste in transparent clear bags.
A limit of six (6) bags per household will be accepted on each scheduled collection day. Empty containers and any garbage/refuse not collected under these regulations must be removed from the curb before 8:30 p.m. the same day.
Please heed the following guidelines for safe disposal of hazardous items:
• Needles must be in a container such as steel or heavy plastic that will prevent accidental puncture to those collecting it.
• Broken glass should be placed in a separate container and marked as such.
• Hot coals/ashes must not be put out for collection.
