Water Testing Results

In December of 2019, the Province of Nova Scotia committed to testing the water in all public schools across Nova Scotia after Health Canada revised its guidelines related to lead concentration levels in water. Health Canada also revised its guidelines related to copper concentration levels in water, and copper tests were also conducted. 

As a result of Health Canada’s update to drinking water guidelines for lead and copper, a water quality and testing protocol was implemented in all twenty(20) of our schools in the Strait Region. Since then, any sources that exceeded the maximum allowable concentration for lead or copper have been remediated. All schools in the SRCE have safe drinking water available for students and staff.


More information about Health Canada’s guidelines related to lead and copper is available at the following sites:
