The City of Canal Fulton would like to thank everyone for your patience while we improve our downtown by rebricking our crosswalks. We are trying to keep everything as accessible as possible, including allowing parking on Canal Street between Cherry St. and Market St., and the diagonal spots on Market Street near the canal. We would also like to remind everyone visit all of the local businesses during this construction. Because of the detours, many people may not realize that the businesses are open. Please be sure to stop by the DragonFly, Happy Days, Deliciously Different, and all of the downtown shops that have helped make our downtown the great area it is today! We apologize for any inconvenience the project has caused.

East Palestine Statement
The City of Canal Fulton and surrounding Stark County area are thankfully unaffected by the unfortunate events of the train derailment in East Palestine, Ohio. The source water for the Canal Fulton Public Water system is in deep underground aquifers and far enough away from the affected areas of the accident that there are no concerns at this time. Additionally, due to typical west-east weather patterns there are not air quality or surface water concerns. The Canal Fulton Utilities Department monitors the drinking water for various contaminants on a routine basis to follow Ohio EPA guidelines. For those still concerned, the EPA has a public interest hotline that callers can contact to find more information about the areas impacted by the event. Additionally, the railroad company has hired a toxicologist consultant to take calls as well. Those numbers are listed below:
Ohio EPA Public Interest Center – (614) 644-2160

PUCO ISSUES GUIDANCE ON WATER SUPPLY FLUSHING
PUCO ISSUES GUIDANCE ON WATER SUPPLY FLUSHING
The Public Utilities Commission of Ohio (PUCO) has issued the following memo regarding water supply flushing:
As businesses and buildings reopen under the “Responsible RestartOhio” plan due to the COVID-19 pandemic, that have had little to no water usage, it is important to flush water that has been stagnant. Low water usage can contribute to bacterial growth, including Legionella which can cause a serious type of pneumonia called Legionnaires’ disease. It can also cause other water quality issues with potential health risks due to the build-up of lead and copper in stagnant water that’s been collecting in older pipes and fixtures.
As buildings reopen, it is critical to drain, flush, and if necessary based on a review of building conditions, disinfect the hot and cold-water systems to remove harmful contaminants. Devices that store water, such as drinking water fountains, water heaters, storage tanks, and any droplet or mist-forming devices such as cooling towers, humidifiers, showerheads, and certain medical and manufacturing devices and process equipment should also be flushed and disinfected in accordance with manufacturer’s recommendations or industry best practices.
The Ohio Department of Health and the Ohio Environmental Protection Agency has issued a letter with more information, which you can access HERE, as well as “Guidance for Premise Plumbing Water Service Restoration”, which you can access HERE.
All questions should be directed to the Ohio Department of Health COVID-19 Hotline at 1-833-4-ASK-ODH.Plumbing Water Service RestorationWater Supply Flushing for Reopening of Buildings
