Region caps off national Drinking Water Week with perfect scores

Niagara Region has a perfect report card to show off when it comes to water treatment.

All six water treatment facilities, one of which is located on Rose Hill Road in Fort Erie, received a 100 per cent rating from the Ministry of Environment, Conservation and Parks during their inspections in 2022-2023.

The ministry does scheduled and surprise inspections of water treatment plants every year to make sure everything is done by the book. The inspections look at reporting, record keeping, certification and training, delivering safe and reliable drinking water, and efficient service delivery.

“The news that Niagara’s drinking water is once again proven to be among the best in Ontario is a wonderful way to cap off national Drinking Water Week,” said Phill Lambert, acting director of water-wastewater services, in reference to the first full week of May each year.

“Achieving 100 per cent compliance from the Ministry highlights the important work that Niagara Region’s dedicated water-wastewater staff provide to our communities.”

A news release issued by the Region stated that this was achieved “by the continuous improvement efforts by Niagara Region’s water and wastewater division staff.”
