Welcome to the Town of Erin


We our currently experiencing an increased risk of interruption in water service due to freezing in the water pipes.  If you notice your water is brown in colour, run the water until clear and please leave one of your COLD water taps running at a trickle at ALL times. 

The trickle should be as thick as a drinking straw.  Please ensure that the water is draining at all times.  Those water pipes at risk of freezing will remain vulnerable for the next 6 week period, weather dependent.  We will notify residents once the risk is over.


If you are currently experiencing a total water loss due to freezing, please call  the Water Department @ 519-855-4407 ext. 223 or after hours emergency number @ 519-830-8600.  Once the water is restored, please maintain a constant trickle until further notice.


Residential Taxes are due March 31st & May 29th.  Tax bill are being mailed soon.  If you have not received your tax bill by mid March, please contact us.
