Drinking water advisories – Boil water advisories by community size, Canada

Drinking water advisories – Boil water advisories by community size, Canada The Canadian Environmental Sustainability Indicators (CESI) program provides data and information to track Canada's performance on key environmental sustainability issues. The Drinking water advisories indicators provide a long-term view of the main reasons why boil water advisories are issued. They also report on the relationship between community size and the percentage of boil water advisories issued each year. The indicators exclude "Do not consume" and "Do not use" advisories, which represent approximately 2% of all drinking water advisories in Canada annually. Drinking water advisories are public health protection messages issued by public health or regulatory authorities. They inform consumers about actions they should take to protect themselves from real or potential health risks related to their drinking water supply. Although Canada's drinking water is among the safest in the world, better understanding key trends related to drinking water advisories helps identify priorities for drinking water infrastructure and operations. This information helps foster consistency and coordination of efforts to enhance drinking water safety and the sustainability of drinking water infrastructure across the country. Information is provided to Canadians in a number of formats including: static and interactive maps, charts and graphs, HTML and CSV data tables and downloadable reports. See the supplementary documentation for the data sources and details on how the data were collected and how the indicator was calculated. 2018-07-10 Environment and Climate Change Canada open-ouvert@tbs-sct.gc.ca Nature and EnvironmentSociety and CultureEnvironmental indicatorsDrinking waterenvironmental indicatorswaterwater qualitydrinking water advisoriesboil water advisoriespublic health protectioncommunity size Data table – English (CSV; 1.15 kB)CSV https://www.canada.ca/content/dam/eccc/documents/csv/cesindicators/drinking-water-advisories/drinking-water-advisories-community-en.csv Data table – French (CSV; 1.37 kB)CSV https://www.canada.ca/content/dam/eccc/documents/csv/cesindicators/drinking-water-advisories/drinking-water-advisories-community-fr.csv Data Sources and MethodsHTML https://www.canada.ca/en/environment-climate-change/services/environmental-indicators/drinking-water-advisories.html#DSM Data Sources and MethodsHTML https://www.canada.ca/fr/environnement-changement-climatique/services/indicateurs-environnementaux/avis-qualite-eau-potable.html#DSM Drinking water advisories – EnglishHTML https://www.canada.ca/en/environment-climate-change/services/environmental-indicators/drinking-water-advisories.html#summary-details1 Drinking water advisories – FrenchHTML https://www.canada.ca/fr/environnement-changement-climatique/services/indicateurs-environnementaux/avis-qualite-eau-potable.html#summary-details1
