Utilities Kingston issues latest water quality reports
March 5, 2014 -
Utilities Kingston has released the 2013 annual reports on drinking water quality.
The reports are prepared in response to Ontario Regulation 170 of the Safe Water Drinking Act.
Ontario has strict water quality standards, which Utilities Kingston continually meets and exceeds.
The drinking water system reports detail how the systems operate. There are a series of filtration, treatment, monitoring and backup systems in place to continually supply high quality drinking water to every home and business within the urban area of Kingston.
The 2013 reports show test results for the King St. Water Treatment Plant and Point Pleasant Water Treatment Plant (serving central and west Kingston, respectively), and the Cana Water Treatment System (serving part of the Kingston East community).
Copies of the reports are now available from Utilities Kingston at City Hall, 216 Ontario St., and www.utilitieskingston.com/Water/
