Measure the effectiveness of Hamilton Water’s treatment systems for the provision of clean, safe drinking water. Standards for drinking water quality are set and enforced by the Safe Water Drinking Act. The City of Hamilton’s drinking water regularly meets all Ontario Drinking Water Standards. Water samples are collected seven days a week from approximately 106 locations.
Story behind the numbers
The current target for adverse water quality incidents is 0. This indicator is influenced by seasonality, external service levels and other factors such as inclement weather and construction activity.
Hamilton Water has a number of initiatives to ensure requirements are met. These include:
- Optimization of the water distribution sampling and testing program to meet and exceed the Ontario Drinking Water Standards
- Development of an Asset Management Plan to rehabilitate and replace aging infrastructure.
