How safe is Toronto’s Tap water? - by Ranee Mahalingam – M.Eng., C.Eng., P.Eng., O.M.C.

raneeOver 5 million residents in greater Toronto rely on Lake Ontario water as the source water. Raw water from the lake is treated by four water treatment plants located along the shore and distributed via several hundred kilometer length of distribution pipes before it gets into your tap.

Is this water safe for human consumption? What safety and control measures are in place ensuring, potable water quality?
