Due to the nature of our industrialized world, there are numerous discharges contaminating the natural environment and ultimately affecting our access to potable drinking water.



Where Does your Water Come From?

If you obtain drinking water from municipal / regional systems, you are relying on those organizations to ensure that you are being provided with safe potable water. If you obtain water from a drinking water well, you rely upon your own initiatives to ensure you are receiving safe potable drinking water.

Did you know many processes within industry result in discharges into the local sewer systems? Non-compliance with Municipal and Regional By-Laws can create legal implications including fines and Provincial Orders.
