Alberta: Province Proposing to Streamline Drinking Water Regulatory Regime

Print Print this Article | Send to Colleague


Environment and Sustainable Resource Development (ESRD) and Alberta Health are collaborating on targeted consultation with key drinking-water stakeholders on regulations related to water quality and drinking-water operations. In particular, Alberta Health will be consulting with operators of small drinking-water systems to review proposed changes to the regulations governing systems under AR 243/2003 Nuisance and General Sanitation Regulation, pursuant to the Public Health Act. 

Following the consultation, the two ministries will work toward developing a single regulatory approach to drinking-water protection in the province. The Alberta Water and Wastewater Operators Association (AWWOA) has been asked to provide feedback on behalf of the consolidated membership.
 

PLEASE NOTE: WHILE THE PROCESS TO REVIEW THESE REQUIREMENTS IS ONGOING, THE CONSULTATION PHASE WITH THE ALBERTA WATER AND WASTEWATER OPERATORS ASSOCIATION IS ALREADY PASSED, AND THEY’VE SUBMITTED THEIR FEEDBACK.
