Aquifer Water Guard (AWG)
Aquifer Water Guard (AWG) is a business that was and is established to meet the demands of the Ministry of Environment`s Regulation 170/03 and Regulations 318/08 and 319/08 as they apply to Municipal and privately owned and publicly accessed establishments. We also offer to the private residence a water treatment system that offers peace of mind and reliability of clean safe drinking water. We have a variety of services that any of our clients may wish to enlist all or individual components of our services. These services are both cost effective and reliable for your `bottom line.`
Welcome to Aquifer Water Guard's homepage. We believe that this website will be informative and provide a service to you. Please see our Terminology page and Guide to Water Quality page. Clean water is a precious commodity that we require to be safe for our loved ones and patrons. AWG will be happy to assist you in your business or residence to establish a safe and healthy environment for drinking water. It is our desire to provide a service for your water needs in both a private application and Governmental regulatory application. Ontario Regulation 170/03 is a regulation under the Ontario Clean Water Act that regulates water for Municipalities, Year-round Non-municipal Residential Camp grounds, Schools and Designated facilities, i.e. day care centres, camps with children's programs. This Regulation brings with it changes to drinking water systems causing installation of water treatment equipment and monitoring by certified or trained individuals. Ministry of Health Regulation 318/08 & 319/08 is another regulation that brings in a greater sense of protection for publicly accessed drinking water systems that are outside of Reg. 170's parameters.
With all the possibilities of contamination to both private and municipal water sources it only makes good sense to provide your own safety to your drinking water. I am sure that it has not passed any of our observations in the media regarding constant problematic Boil Water Advisories even on municipal systems.
We at Aquifer Water Guard will help you at home, your school, day-care, business, service club, campground and religious place of worship provide that safety net for safe clean water. We have Ministry of Environment Certification with our monitoring operators. We have an established monitoring/maintenance program that can be tailored to your system.
Aquifer Water Guard was started by Scott Gillespie as a result of recent Ontario Provincial legislation that created a niche of service needing to be filled. Scott's water treatment experience began under the former Ontario Ministry Environment Regulation 459 and continued with a number of training courses on well maintenance, water treatment and filtration, Water Treatment Fundamentals and Preventing Water Borne Illnesses. All Operators with AWG are well trained and experienced in WT Plant monitoring. AWG is commercially insured for $2,000,000 liability through CREECHURCH.
Presently Aquifer Water Guard services an area covering Brant County, Haldimand-Norfolk, Oxford, Cambridge/Waterloo Region and Rural Hamilton in the Province of Ontario, Canada.
