Abstract

The government of Newfoundland and Labrador is committed to providing the public with clean and safe drinking water. In order to achieve this goal a number of actions have been initiated. For example, the multi-barrier approach includes source protection, water treatment, water system operation and maintenance, water quality monitoring and reporting, regulatory inspection and mitigation planning, and operator education and training (DOEC, 2015). Public water supply systems treat water to ensure free from any microbiological contamination. The Department of Environment and Conservation (DOEC) also measure several non-microbial parameters of the Guidelines for Canadian Drinking Water Quality (GCDWQ) as the indicators of water quality. However, private water sources are outside this mandate and lack mandatory treatment and monitoring guidelines.
