BC Water Week: May 3 - 9, 2015

There is no substitute. Investment in water systems protects our health, environment and quality of life.

CIPHI is a proud sponsor of BC Water Week May 3-9. Visit for more information.

The BC Branch of the Canadian Institute of Public Health Inspectors (CIPHI) works to protect the health of all British Columbians on environmental issues while promoting the science of environmental health and the profession.

We represent active members of the BC Branch, which include Drinking Water Officers (DWO's), throughout the province who are employed by local Health Authorities, and other agencies, that work with water system operators to ensure that drinking water is safe to drink and complies with the Drinking Water Protection Act and Regulation.

The BC CIPHI Branch liases with the Ministry of Health, Health Authorities and representatives of professional/technical agencies that work on drinking water systems developing legislation, policies and guidelines that govern the practice of providing safe drinking water in BC.

Check out this video from VCH which highlights the success of EHO Cindy Watson as she works with the purveyor of a small water system to successfully overcome challenges enabling them to deliver safe clean drinking water. Learn more here
