Drinking water systems achieve 100% rating

Wellington North has announced it has received recognition for the eighth consecutive year for achieving a 100 per cent rating for both the Arthur and Mount Forest drinking water systems.

The inspection report is provided to the township by the Ministry of the Environment and Climate Change (MOECC) after a thorough on-site inspection of the township’s water systems by a MOECC provincial officer.

The inspection considers both operational risk and compliance and is completed annually. The inspection report provides the MOECC, Public Health and the system owner with a summarized quantitative measure of each drinking water system’s performance. The rating result is based out of 100 and is published in the Ministry’s Chief Drinking Water Inspections Annual Report.

“The township’s water and sewer team should be proud of this achievement,” stated water superintendent Barry Trood.

“We have a professional water and sewer team that has delivered eight consecutive years of superior performance which ensures safe drinking water for residents.”
