Drinking Water 2009

The Government of Ontario has introduced more stringent requirements for flushing and testing of drinking water taps in schools, private schools and day nurseries under Ontario Regulation 243/07 (Schools, Private Schools and Day Nurseries) made under the Safe Drinking Water Act, 2002.

Ontario Regulation 243/07 is intended to reduce children's exposure to lead in drinking water.

The regulation introduces daily flushing requirements for schools, private schools and day nurseries with plumbing potentially containing lead (installed before 1990) and new lead related testing requirements to measure the potential presence of lead in water against the provincial drinking water standard of 10 micrograms per litre.

The Drinking Water Systems Regulation (Ontario Regulation 170/03) regulates municipal and private water systems that provide water to year-round residential developments and designated facilities that serve vulnerable populations such as children and the elderly. Designated facilities include childrenÂ’s camps, child and youth care facilities, health care and social care facilities, a school or private school, a university, college or institution with authority to grant degrees.
