|My Drinking Water|

Municipalities own, and are responsible, for municipal drinking water facilities and their operation.
Water sample submissions are required for testing.
There are several responsible water management agencies in Saskatchewan.

Due to the time required to submit water testing results into My Drinking Water database, the information contained in the tables may be behind actual submission dates made by waterworks.
Effective 2008 April, Current Sampling Requirements (most recent data for the current monitoring requirements in place) and Historical Sampling Requirements (historical data for the old monitoring requirements) are found in separate listings.
Printable report features are also available in the Advanced Search area.

Hygienic Use Systems provide water to be used for hygienic purposes by humans, (including bathing, showering, personal hygiene but not including swimming). Hygienic use must not
include a human consumptive use (drinking, oral hygiene and food preparation making ice cubes, etc).
Water provided for hygienic use (where permitted) must be provided by a system approved by Saskatchewan Ministry of Environment and that system must be maintained in accordance with the regulations by the permittee of the works.
