High Marks For Durham Water

The 2016 Water Quality Report was released this week, and the results found that Durham Region met or went beyond the requirements of the Safe Water Drinking Act. The act sets out the standards for the operation, treatment, and testing of municipal drinking water systems. Nearly 8200 water samples were tested last year; among the highlights - a 99.8% compliance rate for bacteriological samples. The testing is conducted at the York Durham Regional Environmental Laboratory, a state of the art facility specializing in the testing of water and wastewater.
