Water Notification & Water Quality Alerts

Water quality notifications are published and distributed through the RDNO websites.  Other methods of communicating water quality changes include media releases, email and phone calls to sensitive facilities (hospitals, care facilities, schools and DND), customers (restaurants, day cares, brewery and individuals if subscribed), and road signboards if a high risk to health is determined.  Potable (drinking) water must meet the provincial Drinking Water Protection Act and Regulations and is measured against the standards set by the Canadian Drinking Water Quality Guidelines.

Have a look at the Water Source Area Map to determine your source of water.  The Interior Health Protection Water Quality Program is dedicated to achieving safe, clean, reliable drinking water which is an essential component of a healthy community.
