Windsor’s Drinking Water System received a 100% rating from the Ministry of the Environment, Conservation and Parks (MECP) for an eighth consecutive year.

The rating is based upon a variety of criteria including management of the drinking water system, managerial best practices and commitment to asset replacement through capital investment.

“We’re very proud to be recognized by the Ministry with a 100 percent rating,” remarked ENWIN Vice President Water Operations, Garry Rossi. “To accomplish this for an eighth consecutive year demonstrates our commitment to ensuring the quality, safety and reliability of our drinking water.”

The Ministry’s report acknowledged the quality focused processes and procedures at the A.H. Weeks Water Treatment Plant and throughout the distribution system. Specifically, the greater number of mandatory drinking water samples and increased frequency of testing, beyond Ministry standards.

In 2019, ENWIN and the Windsor Utilities Commission produced 38.7 trillion litres of potable water.
