Action protocol for exceedances of chemical health parameters in drinking water

Description

Alberta Environment regulates waterworks systems that supply water to approximately 80 per cent of the province's population. The purpose of this document is to outline: the process followed by the Federal/Provincial/Territorial Committee on Drinking Water to develop the Guidelines for Canadian Drinking Water Quality; how these guidelines will be implemented by Alberta Environment; how these guidelines are monitored and reported; and the protocol to be followed in the event that a non-bacteriological drinking water test result exceeds a health limit. It is intended that this document will increase the awareness and confidence Albertans have in the drinking water provided to them by regulated waterworks systems.
