How do I get my water tested?
If you are inside the water distribution serviced area (Enfield, Elmsdale, Lantz and Shubenacadie) you may call the Municipality at 902-883-2299 during 8:30am-4:30pm Monday to Friday and ask to speak with the Supervisor of Drinking Water Operations or the Manager of Water & Wastewater.
Actual water chemistry and distribution system data is obtained on a daily, weekly and monthly basis for the entire system and reported quarterly to the Nova Scotia Department of Environment (NSE).
If you live outside the serviced area you will have a private well system which falls under provincial regulations (NSE). For further information please follow the links below;
