The quality of drinking water provided to customers in the Wilderness Mountain Water System is overseen by the CRD Water Quality Division and the data is stored in the Water Quality Division database.

Water Quality Division staff prepare a number of water quality reports and summaries for the Wilderness Mountain Water System. These reports track drinking water quality against the limits listed in the BC Drinking Water Protection Regulation and the Canadian Drinking Water Quality Guidelines. All reports are posted in Adobe Acrobat PDF format. (PDF)

Periodic Water Quality Reports

Periodic Water Quality Reports provide water quality data for parameters that are tested periodically (i.e., quarterly, semi-annually, annually or on an 'As Required' basis). However, depending upon water system configuration, not all parameters are tested each year. If the report contains no data, it means the parameters were not tested during the reporting period shown near the top of the report.

Wilderness Mountain Water System Year-To-Date (YTD) Reports for Periodically Tested Parameters * (covers the most recent 12 month period)
Disinfection By-Products (THMs and HAAs) YTD DBP Report
Metals 1 (Aluminum to Copper) YTD Metals 1 Report **
Metals 2 (Iron to Zinc) YTD Metals 2 Report
Parasites (Giardia and Cryptosporidium) YTD Parasites Report

* YTD Reports for Periodically Tested Parameters are updated shortly after the end of each month and provide a summary of test results for the most recent 12 month period.

** The metals were divided alphabetically into 2 groups to make the reports easier to read.

*** Typically, algal toxins are only tested in water systems supplied from a surface water body containing high levels of blue-green algae

Annual Water Quality Reports
