Small drinking water systems include restaurants, seasonal trailer parks, summer camps, community centres, libraries, gas stations, motels, churches and many other public facilities. If you are not sure whether your system is included, call the Huron County Health Unit.
As an owner of a small drinking water system, it is your responsibility to provide safe water to the public. You must notify the health unit if you’re the owner of a small drinking water system. The health unit will explain the requirements of the Act and the regulation you need to follow. They will refer you to the small drinking water system identification form to complete and send in to the health unit. The health unit will arrange a time for inspection and go over all information you need to know, including:
- Taking a Drinking Water Sample (how to)
- Water Testing: Get and understand your test results
- Choosing a lab and completing the lab services notification form
- Response to adverse events and completing the notice of adverse test results and issue resolution form
- Protecting your well water
