Automated external defibrillator program

Memorial University Drinking Water Quality Guide

Memorial University is committed to ensuring that every person on campus has access to safe drinking water. In 2016, the University initiated a sampling and testing program to test drinking water quality.
University Health and Safety committee (UHSC) established a Drinking Water sub-committee to systematically assess the key parameters of drinking water quality in all buildings at Memorial and ensure that the intake of drinking water falls within the Guidelines for Canadian Drinking Water Quality, published by Health Canada.
Memorial Drinking Water sub-committee developed a Terms of Reference and Drinking Water Quality guide that have been approved by the UHSC.
