Municipal Water Supply

Routine bacterial and chemical testing is conducted on drinking water by all municipal water systems operators to ensure that Ontario Drinking Water Quality Standards are met.

Adverse water test results are reported to Algoma Public Health by both the laboratory and operators of the municipal drinking water system. If the public is at risk, we ensure they are notified to reduce or prevent injuries or illness from drinking or using unsafe water.

If you have questions regarding municipal water testing, please contact your local water utilities operating authority.
