Ontario’s chief drinking water inspector, John Stager, has released his fifth annual report, providing an overview of the state of the province’s drinking water including quality tests, inspection and performance.
Of the report findings publicized by the Province in a press release, it appears that over 99 per cent of drinking water tests met Ontario’s strict water quality standards, including:
- 99.87 per cent of tests reported at municipal drinking water systems
- 99.38 per cent of the tests at systems serving designated facilities such as day cares, schools or health care centres
- 99.40 per cent of the tests at private systems serving residential developments and mobile home park.
