Drinking Water and Sewage

The Drinking Water Quality Monitoring Program supports weekly sampling and monitoring of water for total coliforms and e coli.  The Ashnola, Chopaka and Blind Creek community water systems, Bandschook and Dayware are sampled weekly.  Private wells are sampled twice a year.  The objectives are to reduce the incidence of waterborne illnesses; and outbreaks by increasing and improving the monitoring of and reporting on community drinking water supplies.  It implements the Guidelines for Canadian Drinking Water Quality by responding to problems by sampling, analyzing and making recommendation for corrective actions.  LSIB staff collaborates with the Environmental Health Officer (Health Canada) in delivering this program.
