Good quality water is essential to the health of Kingstonians and the environment we rely upon to support our quality of life.  Most of Kingston's drinking water comes from Lake Ontario and to make sure our lakes, rivers and groundwater stay clean it is important that we all understand how water can be polluted and how we can contribute to keeping our water safe and clean and abundant.
