Drinking Water
- Small Drinking Water Systems


What is the Small Drinking Water Regulation?

The Small Drinking Water Systems regulation O.Reg.319/08 is a new regulation that requires that owners of small drinking water systems maintain and monitor their drinking water to ensure that drinking water that is served to the public from small drinking water systems is safe. Responsibility for small drinking water systems has been transferred effective December 1, 2008 to the Ministry of Health and Long Term Care from the Ministry of the Environment.

The new Small Drinking Water Regulations under the Health Protection and Promotion Act are in effect:


What is a Small Drinking Water System?

If your business makes provides drinking water available to the public and you do not get your drinking water from a municipal drinking water system you may be the owner or operator of a small drinking water system.

Here are some examples of small drinking water systems that are regulated under the Small Drinking Water System new regulation:

  • Seasonal trailer parks, campgrounds or resorts with 6 or more connections
  • Restaurants on private water systems
  • Hotels, motels and bed and breakfast accommodations
  • Recreational and athletic facilities
  • Place of worship
  • Places where service clubs and fraternal organizations meet
  • Any place where the general public has access to a drinking water fountain or shower

Information for Small Drinking Water System Operators in Times of Drought

With many of our conservation authorities declaring moderate to severe drought conditions across Leeds, Grenville and Lanark Counties, the Health Unit would like to ensure that Small Drinking Water Systems owners are aware of risks to their well water supply.

 


Your Public Health Inspector is here to Help:

  • Under this new system, Small Drinking Water Systems will be inspected by Public Health Inspectors from your local health unit.

  • Your local Public Health inspectors will conduct a site-specific risk assessment on every small drinking water system in Leeds, Grenville and Lanark Counties. Based on the assessment, they will determine what owners and operators must do to keep their drinking water safe and will issue a directive for the system, which may include requirements such as water testing, treatment and training. This reflects a customized approach for each small drinking water system depending on the level of risk, rather than "one-size-fits-all" requirements.
