Description:
The Department of Government Services and the Department of Health and Community Services are jointly responsible for monitoring the bacteriological quality of public water supplies in the province. This sampling activity is carried out on a regular basis by Environmental Health Officers located throughout the province. Boil water advisories are issued when water sampling and testing detects higher than accepted amounts of coliforms (bacteria) or if there are deficiencies with regard to chlorination or other forms of disinfection. In such cases, the results are immediately communicated to affected communities for appropriate action. The information is also passed along to regional Medical Officers of Health to advise that action has been taken with the community, and for any follow up that may be necessary by the public health system. Data is uploaded to Open Data each business day by 10am.
