How do I make a standing water complaint?

Public Health investigates standing water in the community if it is a potential breeding ground for a mosquito population. Only report water that has become stagnant (i.e., water that remains in an area for 7 days or more and is not flowing or subject to wind or wave action). Standing water can collect on the ground, a roof, pool covers, and in containers such as tires and eaves.


To make a complaint, call the WNV Infoline at 519-539-9800, ext. 3489, or toll-free 1-800-755-0394.
