Water Treatment​

​​
The Midland water system includes numerous wells, one high lift station, two booster pumping stations and four storage reservoir sites. Not all of the wells are currently active. The water system serves a municipal population of approximately 16240.

Two main pressure zones are presently required due to the topography of the community.

All areas of the grid system are linked including the Portage Park water system, which was transferred to the Town of Midland from the Township of Tay in 1998.

 Drinking Water Quality Management System

What Is A Quality Management System?

​A quality management system consists of policies, procedures and objectives that direct and control an organization with respect to quality. ​

Why Does The Town of Midland Need One?

​Justice O’Connor recommended in the Part Two Report of the Walkerton Inquiry that a new approvals framework for municipal drinking water systems, which would require owners to obtain a license to operate their systems as well as incorporate the concept of quality management into their operations, be adopted. To meet this recommendation, the Ministry of Environment (MOE) developed the municipal drinking water licensing program, implemented under the Safe Drinking Water Act, 2002 (SDWA), and one part of this licensing program was the creation of the drinking water quality management standard (DWQMS). In order to be licensed to provide drinking water, a municipality must have a quality management system in place that meets the requirements of the DWQMS. ​

Quality is Key!

​As a Supplier/Contractor you need to know that the product or service you are contracted to provide to the town must meet specific quality requirements that will aid the Town in continuing to provide safe drinking water to all users of its drinking water system.

Pay attention to your purchase order or tender document!

​Specific quality requirements will be noted on your purchase order or tender document, and may include a requirement that you provide a certificate or other document when you deliver the product or service. (i.e. Certificate of Analysis for calibration standards) ​

We may want to see what you do!

​Additionally, you or your personnel may be subject to an on-site verification audit where Town personnel will observe how you complete your task, and will document that you are following the regulated procedures (i.e. water-main disinfection after repair or construction)

As a Supplier/Contractor what do I need to know and what do I need to do?

​Suppliers and Contractors play an important role in helping the Town of Midland ensure that safe drinking water is provided to all consumers.
