Drinking Water

Drinking water must be safe to drink. Whether you are at home, school, work or in the community, we use water every day for drinking, brushing our teeth, washing fruits and vegetables, washing dishes and bathing, etc.

Ontario has water quality standards that drinking water must meet. Lambton Public Health and its public health inspectors (PHIs) help prevent and reduce water-borne illness related to drinking water by:

  • Working with the operators of municipal drinking water systems
  • Working with the operators of small drinking water systems
  • Issuing boil water or drinking water advisories when drinking water is found to be unsafe to drink
  • Helping homeowners get their private well water tested, interpret water sample results, and provide advice.
