Should you drink the water?

New drinking water guide and app tells consumers if water is safe.

The Water Chronicles has released an updated version of its Guide to Canada’s Drinking Water.

The guide complements the recently launched Drink Guide app produced by the Lake Ontario Waterkeepers in partnership with The Water Chronicles.

The Guide to Canada’s Drinking Water offers a province by province listing of drinking water websites, plus phone and email contacts for anyone with questions about their drinking water.

The guide is a free smartphone app offering water advisory information updated daily for all areas of Canada.

The app also lists do not consume orders, boil water advisories, blue-green algae alerts and water shortages.

People can also sign up through the app to receive email notifications of any advisories in their areas.

The Water Chronicles is an online site dedicated to all things pertaining to water and has published water advisories since 2006.
