Government of New Brunswick

The following Drinking Water Quality Guidelines have been adopted from the Guidelines for Canadian Drinking Water Quality established by Health Canada. Municipally and provincially owned and operated water systems are required to sample their water according to the Clean Water Act. Regulated water supplies must test for the specific parameters within this list.  Regulated drinking water that exceeds these limits will be subject to a health risk assessment which may result in the issuance of an interdiction (in the form of a boil order, do not consume order, or other directive), to ensure the safety of citizens.
