HELP Clean Water is a regional infrastructure project funded through the Building Canada Fund (BCF).  It will supply safe, clean drinking water to over 500,000 residents in Southwestern Ontario for generations to come.

Local infrastructure components of HELP Clean Water include:

 

Environmental Management System

The Lake Huron Primary Water Supply System and Elgin Area Primary Water Supply System have each implemented an Environmental Management System registered to the ISO14001:2004 international standard.

Drinking Water Quality Management System

Under the Safe Drinking Water Act, the Ontario Ministry of the Environment requires that drinking water system operating authorities become accredited.  In order to become accredited, the operating authority must establish and maintain a Drinking Water Quality Management System.
