The SSID aquifer contains clean untreated drinking water. We test the water from 8 locations in Savary Shores for the Monthly Water Reports on e-coli and total coliforms (both usually zero), and do Nitrates Tests from both wells quarterly. Twice each year, a Full-Spectrum analysis shows the levels of multiple components of our water. We also provide an Annual Report on the waterworks to the Drinking Water Officer.
