The City of Thunder Bay, Ontario has released its 2018 Drinking Water Quality Annual Report.

This report details water quality results from January 1 to December 31, 2018, in accordance with Ontario Drinking Water System Regulation (O. Reg. 170/03) under the Safe Drinking Water Act 2002. It also contains information on how water is treated, how it is delivered, and an update on the City of Thunder Bay’s Corrosion Control Program for lead.

“Water quality is monitored 24 hours a day, seven days a week,” said Michelle Warywoda, director of the environment division at the City of Thunder Bay. “This report confirms the continued delivery of high-quality safe drinking water. We encourage residents to read the report to learn how the city’s drinking water is treated, monitored, and delivered to their homes. We also invite residents to come tour the Bare Point Water Treatment Plant to discover this firsthand.”

“I am pleased to advise that in 2018, the drinking water system received an Inspection Summary Rating Record of 100% following a focused unannounced Ministry of Environment and Climate Change inspection in January 2018,” said Warywoda in the report. “Also, in October 2018, the water authority successfully transitioned to the new Drinking Water Quality Management Standard (Version 2) and received accreditation from SAI Global through an external audit process.”
