Upcoming changes to drinking water

EPCOR cares about the health and wellbeing of customers and takes its commitment to providing safe, reliable drinking water very seriously. Our region’s drinking water comes from EPCOR’s treatment plants. In December 2022, EPCOR will add orthophosphate to its water treatment process to protect customers from lead in drinking water and water pipe corrosion. While there isn’t lead in the water when it leaves the treatment plant, lead can get into the drinking water through lead pipes and other household plumbing fixtures. 

Orthophosphate is tasteless, odourless and safe. Phosphate is naturally found in foods like bread, cheese, fruits and nuts. It’s also a common additive in beverages.
