Medical Health Officer's Report

Some of you may have the article in the Times Colonist on Dec 2/14 indicating that many island water systems do not comply with Canadian Drinking Water Guidelines, or submit the required number of bacteriological water samples for testing.   

We wanted to remind our customers the District performs weekly testing for Total Coliform organisms which is bacteria that indicates contamination from human, animal, soil or vegetation source, and testing for E. Coli.  The weekly test results are available on the Related Links section on our home page. A copy of the Annual Inspection Report can also be viewed through the reports and forms tab.  Island Health gives our District the very lowest hazard rating, which is something we are very proud of.
