CANTEST Ltd., an analytical and testing laboratory, has won a three-year contract with Manitoba Water Stewardship to provide microbiological testing of drinking water from all drinking water treatment plants in Manitoba. The testing will help Manitoba Water Stewardship, a department of the Government of Manitoba, monitor and improve drinking water quality across Manitoba as per the Drinking Water Safety Act.

“We will be testing around 72,000 samples per year for various forms of microbiological contamination,” says Marnie Kolach, manager of CANTEST’s Winnipeg lab. “From May through September, we’ll also be testing samples for Manitoba’s Beach Monitoring Program, which ensures water quality is acceptable for recreational purposes.”
