The Water Division is responsible for treating, disinfecting and distributing water to Town residents. They monitor the quantity and quality of the water in compliance with provincial requirements and deal with water quality concerns of the public.
Annual Water Quality Reports are prepared each year and are available to the public for review. Additionally, annual drinking water inspections are conducted by the Ministry of the Environment, Conservation and Parks (MOECP) to ensure the municipal drinking water system conforms to all necessary regulatory requirements set out by the Province. Links to the current reports can be found in the Documents list at right.
The Town's water supply comes from two municipal groundwater wells, along with treated surface water from the Town of Innisfil.
