Drinking Water Quality Management Standard (DWQMS)

A framework for operating authorities and owners of drinking water systems

The Drinking Water Quality Management Standard (DWQMS) defines a framework for operating authorities and owners of drinking water systems to develop a Quality Management System (QMS) that is relevant to their organization.

The adoption of drinking water focused quality management systems is not new; however, the requirement to implement the DWQMS is now mandated through the Safe Drinking Water Act (SDWA), of Ontario, Canada.

Today’s environment is filled with intense scrutiny but being competitive means never standing still.
