The Province of Ontario’s drinking water is among the best protected in the world, according to the 2013-14 Chief Drinking Water Inspector’s Annual Report, which provides details about the performance of municipal and other regulated drinking water systems.
“The people of Ontario expect their drinking water to be safe and we are committed to providing the highest quality drinking water throughout the province,” said Minister of the Environment and Climate Change, Glen Murray. “From source to tap, our world renowned drinking water safety net ensures that can be confident in the quality and safety of our drinking water.”
The report shows that more than 99.8 per cent of water from municipal drinking water systems met the province’s standards, and that just under 99.5 per cent of water from daycares, schools, and health care facilities did the same.
The 2013-14 Chief Drinking Water Inspector’s Annual Report is the 10th edition of the publication.
