Central Water Supplies

What is a central water supply system?

About 45% of Islanders are serviced by public water supply systems operated by either a municipality, or a private water supply utility. An example of a public water supply is where one or more  wells are connected with piping and service five or more homes or cottages In addition to these central water supply systems, there are many semi-public, stand-alone water systems such as those that supply schools, day-care centres, etc. The delivery of safe drinking water by these systems involves a number of important steps, including the design, operation, monitoring and maintenance of the system.

What types of approvals are required for central water supply systems?

The approval and operational requirements vary depending upon the type of central water supply system.
