Utilities Kingston Issues Latest Water Quality Reports

Published on: 2012/02/28 - in Releases

Utilities Kingston has released the 2011 annual reports on drinking water quality.

“Utilities Kingston is pleased to present the 2011 water quality reports to the community,” said Kevin Riley, Director of Water and Wastewater Operations.

The reports are prepared in response to Ontario Regulation 170 of the Safe Water Drinking Act.

“Ontario has one the strictest set of standards,” added Riley. “Kingston continually meets and exceeds these standards.”

The drinking water system reports detail how the systems operate. There are a series of filtration, treatment, monitoring and backup systems in place to continually supply high quality drinking water to every home and business within the urban area of Kingston.

The 2011 reports show test results for the King St. Water Treatment Plant and Point Pleasant Water Treatment Plant (serving central and west Kingston, respectively), and the Cana Water Treatment System (serving part of the Kingston East community).

Copies of the reports are available from Utilities Kingston at City Hall at 216 Ontario St. and are also available on the Utilities Kingston website.
