Domestic Well Water Quality in Alberta

This tool was designed to help you explore water quality test data collected from private domestic wells over the past several years. You can view anything from a provincial overview right down to an individual test at a specific location.

In rural Alberta, 90 per cent of people use private well water in their homes for drinking, cooking, bathing or cleaning. If used for the above purposes, these wells do not require a license. Typically, the water well drillers submit a drilling report to Alberta Environment and Parks on behalves of well owners when a new well is drilled.

Though wells are not regulated, Alberta Health Services offers information and advice on safe water for drinking, while Alberta Health provides the water testing free of charge. It is the responsibility of private well owners to check the quality and safety of their water supply. Contamination from natural sources or human activities can make well water look, taste, or smell bad. People should check the quality of their well water regularly. They can get advice from their local public health officers about how often they should do testing. More information on domestic well water quality and testing is available in Alberta Health’s Domestic Well Water Quality Fact Sheets (AH,2014a)
