York Region achieved top marks on the 2017 Drinking Water Report which show 99.96 per cent of the 2017 laboratory samples comply with provincial water quality standards as confirmed by Ontario’s Chief Drinking Water Inspector’s Annual Report.

The Drinking Water Systems Report summarizes how York Region’s drinking water systems performed in 2017. More than 15,000 laboratory drinking water tests were performed and 36 million online analyzer readings were recorded to confirm the quality of Regional tap water in 2017.

Under the Safe Drinking Water Act, 2002, York Region reports annually on the quality and quantity of drinking water produced. It is one component of a multi-barrier approach which also includes source water protection, operator training, water treatment, extensive monitoring and testing, as well as emergency preparedness.

York Region has also developed an online tool which allows anyone to view the performance of York Region water systems and drinking water quality details in an accessible and easy to understand format. Access to the new online reporting tool is available at york.ca/drinkingwater
