The great majority of outfitters will need to adhere to Ontario Regulation 319/08 which sets standards and rules for small drinking water systems. Small drinking water systems are also now administered by the Ministry of Health and Long Term Care instead of the Ministry of the Environment.

If you want to learn more about drinking water systems you can check out the Ministry of the Health’s website. 

NOTO most recent article offers an excellent overview of the Small Drinking Water Systems and the inspection process. Read this article: Are you ready for your Drinking Water Inspection?
