CORNWALL — It’s seven times running with a perfect score for Cornwall’s drinking water.

The city announced Friday morning it aced a Ministry of Environment inspection of the municipal water system.

The inspection, which focused on purification, operator training and water quality monitoring, was completed in January.

“We continuously monitor our drinking water to ensure that residents and businesses have access to a safe source of water,” said Owen O’Keefe, Water Purification Plant Supervisor. “Residents can take pride in knowing the quality of their drinking water is second to none.”

Cornwall’s drinking water is drawn from Lake St. Lawrence above the R.H. Saunders Power Generating Station on Second Street West.

The city is also required by law to release the inspection report, which is on the city website.
