The County of Oxford monitors water 24/7 to ensure it is safe to drink. We treat water, remove harmful contaminants, and maintain the underground network of pipes that deliver it to your house.
Only tap water delivers
Did you know the water from your tap is regularly tested for bacteria and more than 70 different chemicals? Tap water offers safety, reliability, and the best value for your dollar. A typical 500 mL bottle you buy outside the home can cost between $1.00 and $3.00. From your tap, you can fill the same water bottle more than 1 500 times for $1.00!
Only Tap Water Delivers is the County’s public education campaign about municipal tap water. Learn more
