WATER TREATMENT PLANTS /DISTRIBUTION SYSTEMS
Municipal drinking water systems in Alberta are governed by regulations, guidelines and legislation set forth by Alberta Environment, Sustainable Resources Development (AESRD) and Healthy Canada By law in Alberta, these systems must be constructed to government’s design standards and operated according to provincial facility approvals. Facility operators are responsible for the day-to-day operation of treatment plants and must operate in accordance with the standards.
Water treatment operators regularly sample and test water, then analyze their data to know how effectively their treatment and distribution processes are working to provide safe drinking water.
Monitoring is also done on treated water before it enters the distribution system, and at random locations throughout the distribution system. This monitoring focuses on microbiological quality.
