Town’s Well Water Tampered with Motor Oil: RCMP

RCMP Crest LogoWell water in the RM of Argyle, Manitoba was tampered with approximately 50 litres of used motor oil late last month.

The wells were not yet connected to the town of Pilot Mound’s water supply, and no water was consumed or distributed. Manitoba Conservation and Water Stewardship was on scene immediately, and crews were able to remove the contaminant before it mixed in with the water supply.
