Drinking Water Quality Reports
All municipalities in Ontario are required to produce an annual report on drinking water systems. This report is a result of new Drinking Water Systems Regulations (Regulation 170/03), introduced by the Ministry of the Environment on June 1, 2003.
For all municipal residential systems, the reporting period is from January 1 to December 31 and is to be prepared by February 28th of the following year.
Free copies of all reports prepared to date are available at City Hall, 2nd Floor Engineering and Operations Department and the Public Works office, 11 King Street, Port Colborne.

Sherkston Community Centre
The City is also required to prepare annual drinking water quality reports for the drinking water system at the Sherkston Community Centre. The City is the Owner of the Sherkston Community Centre Cistern System, which is a small municipal, non-residential system that serves the Sherkston Community Centre. The District School Board of Niagara operates a school program, called the "Sherkston BRIDGE" program for grade 7 and 8 students, out of the facility. This program falls under the definition of a "designated facility" under the regulation, and therefore this small drinking water system falls under the requirements for Ontario Regulation 170/03.
