Everyone in Saskatchewan needs a good supply of safe, clean drinking water. Municipalities own and are responsible for municipal drinking water facilities and their operation. Water provided for drinking or hygienic use must be provided by systems approved by Water Security Agency (WSA) and maintained in accordance with the regulations by the permittee of the waterworks.
Drinking water in Saskatchewan is required to meet the water quality standards defined in The Waterworks and Sewage Works Regulations and summarized in the Drinking Water Quality Objectives. Hygienic use systems provide water to be used for hygienic purposes by humans (e.g. bathing, showering, personal hygiene). Hygienic use must not include a human consumptive use (e.g. drinking, oral hygiene, food preparation).
Access drinking water quality sample results for communities regulated by WSA and the Ministry of Environment. Water sample test results, for current and historical monitoring requirements, are available. As well, an advanced search of data is available where dates and available parameters can be custom-selected. These water sample test results can be downloaded. Reports for the inspections carried out by authorized staff for regulated communities are also available for viewing and download.
Please note: Drinking water quality sample results may be delayed.
