Water Test Results
Safe drinking water is available in all public schools in Nova Scotia.
In 2019, Health Canada revised its guidelines related to lead concentration levels in water. Since then, water quality in schools have been tested on an ongoing basis.
Remediation measures have been introduced and information about individual schools is available on Regional Centre for Education and CSAP websites. Additionally, the province and federal governments funded individual water stations for schools in Nova Scotia during the COVID-19 pandemic.
All schools have safe drinking water available for students and staff.
