In June 2008, our office issued Fit to Drink: Challenges in Providing Safe Drinking Water in British Columbia. This systemic investigation included 39 recommendations made to the five regional health authorities, the Ministry of Environment, the Office of the Provincial Health Officer, and the Ministry of Health. The authorities accepted and agreed to implement all of the recommendations.
The recommendations addressed the following areas: dealing with questions, concerns and complaints; public advisories and notices; monitoring and enforcement; issues affecting small systems; and drinking water management initiatives.
