Operational Plans

In Part Two of the Report of the Walkerton Inquiry, Justice Dennis O’Connor recommended that a quality management standard specifically designed for drinking water systems be developed and implemented in Ontario. This led to the creation of the Drinking Water Quality Management Standard, which provides the minimum requirements for an operating authority to establish and maintain a quality management system (QMS). A QMS for a subject system is documented in an Operational Plan. Operational Plans for all systems operated by NWI are available here.

Operational Plans are also available for public viewing at the respective municipal offices. Questions and comments concerning NWI’s QMS may be directed to
