    As the regulator for water quality, the Water Security Agency (WSA) determines standards which are legally enforceable requirements for drinking water quality as per The Water Regulations (2002). In general, Standards are mandatory health parameters for systems that supply water for human consumptive use. The WSA also determines water quality aesthetic objectives which apply to certain characteristics of or substances found in water for human consumptive or hygienic use.  

    SaskWater undertakes water quality testing as required by The Water Regulations (2002) and by operating permits for our owned and operated water treatment plants and distribution systems.

    SaskWater monitors water quality in order to:

    • Assess and ensure the safety of water for our customers
    • Assess the need for any process adjustments
    • Determine quality trends and identify potential concerns
