Private Systems

Please note private wells and water systems are not regulated by Alberta Environment and are not included in this website. Owners of private systems are responsible for maintaining and ensuring the safety of their water. For more information on maintaining your water well, please refer to the Rural Water Quality Information Tool and the Environmental Public Health Field Manual for Private, Public and Communal Drinking Water Systems in Alberta. Additional information regarding groundwater can be found by clicking on groundwater.

The water quality information on this website is collected by Alberta Environment and Parks under regulatory requirements to operate a waterworks system. This is public information, however, it is not the most current available in time due to reporting schedules. Most information here is 30 to 60 days previous, and older.

You are advised to contact either your water provider or Alberta Health Services to determine current water quality for your waterworks system, specifically if there are any advisories in place. If available, service provider contact information and websites are available under the Contact Information link (at the top) once you select a waterworks system.
