Water Sampling and Testing Program, O. Reg. 243/07

The Toronto Catholic District School Board (TCDSB) has an annual water sampling and testing program, which has been in place since 1989 to test for lead in drinking water in schools and offices.

The Ministry of Environment announced on June 7, 2007 a new regulation requiring schools to test their water for lead annually and to flush their water daily for at least 5 minutes.

O. Reg. 243/07

TCDSB's testing and flushing program exceeds many of the requirements in O. Reg. 243/07​. Head Caretakers have been flushing the water every morning for 20 minutes before classes begin.
