For the third year in a row Niagara Region’s six water treatment facilities have obtained a 100 per cent rating from the Ministry of Environment and Climate Change (MOECC) during its 2016 inspections.
A 100 per cent rating demonstrates the Region’s commitment
to going above and beyond the multi-barrier, health-based drinking water quality
standards mandated by the province.
The MOECC inspects water treatment facilities annually to
ensure compliance with provincial regulations. In addition to water quality
monitoring, these inspections look at various aspects of water operations,
including reporting, record keeping, and certification and training. Delivering
safe and reliable drinking water and efficient service delivery is at the
forefront of daily operations for both the Region and your local municipality.
Niagara Region is committed to ensuring residents receive
the highest quality drinking water each and every day. This is achieved by the continuous
improvement efforts by all staff in the water and wastewater division. To learn

"The Region is committed to providing high quality services to Niagara residents. These results are a testament to the dedication of our staff that maintain and deliver clean fresh drinking water to our communities, and Regional Council’s commitment to investing in the maintenance of Niagara’s water infrastructure.
