Drinking Water Quality Management System

In response to Justice O’Conner’s recommendations in Part Two of the Walkerton Inquiry, all drinking water systems within the Province of Ontario are required to obtain a Municipal Drinking Water License. One of the licensing requirements is to design and implement a Quality Management System (QMS), which is documented in an Operational Plan. The Operational Plan must conform to 21 elements of the province’s Drinking Water Quality Management Standard. Element 2 of the Standard requires the creation of and commitment to a Quality Management System Policy, which can be found within the Operational Plan.

The Municipality of Central Huron has received operating licenses for all of its drinking water systems, following accreditation audits by the Canadian General Standards Board.
