Water quality testing in the RDN water service areas is carried out on a regular basis to ensure a safe source of water for our customers. The Vancouver Island Health Authority (VIHA) establishes the frequency of testing for each water system with test samples being analyzed by the provincial laboratory. In addition, RDN staff perform weekly testing to afford an early indication of any water quality problems, should they occur. Annually, both tap and a raw water samples for each water system are analyzed based on the Canadian Drinking Water Guidelines by an independent laboratory.
These test results are available for each water service area and can be accessed by clicking on the community name below. Click here for a link to the water quality testing guidelines.
