Program

Johnstone Crossing Health Centre - Environmental Public Health - Drinking Water

Ensures drinking water supplies in Alberta (e.g., large public water systems for cities and towns, private water supplies) are safe to drink. Inspects public water supplies, reviews water sample results, and issues water advisories if needed. You can get water testing supplies (sample bottles) and shipping information from your local Community Health Centre. Testing for municipalities and private home owners is done through the Provincial Laboratory of Public Health and Alberta Centre for Toxicology. If there is E. coli or total coliform bacteria in your sample, you will be contacted right away. May advise private homeowners about how safe their well, cistern, or dugout water is and talk about treatment options if needed.
