Surface Water and Residential Drinking Water Sampling

Posted on Wednesday September 30, 2015

On June 10, 2015, the Sudbury & District Health Unit (SDHU) lifted the drinking water advisory that came into effect Saturday, March 7, 2015, for residents who take their drinking water from Minisinakwa Lake or from wells supplied by the lake.  They also included in their statement that the water sampling data collected by CN and the Ministry of the Environment and Climate Change (MOECC) indicates that swimming and other recreational activities in Minisinakwa Lake do not pose a health concern. The SDHU is the public health agency for the Minisinakwa Lake area and works with the Public Health Branch of the Ministry of Health and other provincial regulatory bodies including the MOECC.
