Annual Water Reports

Water Suppliers have various responsibilities under the Drinking Water Protection Act and the Drinking Water Protection Regulations.

Section 15 of the Drinking Water Protection Act and Section 11 of the Drinking Water Protection Regulation require all water suppliers to provide annual reports to their users. The 2008 Ombudsman’s report “Challenges in Providing Safe Drinking Water in British Columbia” reiterates the importance of these reports. The purpose of the report is to improve public awareness regarding their drinking water, as well as ensuring access and direction for individuals who may have concerns regarding their drinking water.

The Vancouver Island Health Authority requires that the City of Parksville begin providing the annual report along with written indication of how the report can be viewed (i.e. municipal website). In order to provide the information and meet the reporting requirements, the operations department completed the City of Parksville's Annual Water Reports. These reports include information on:

  • An overview of the water system and the description of the water source
  • Maintenance programs
  • Improvements made to the water system
  • Water test results
