Ottawa Public Health (OPH) is mandated under the Ontario Health Protection and Promotion Act and the Ontario Public Health Standards to inspect Small Drinking Water Systems to ensure compliance with the O. Reg. 319/08: Small Drinking Water Systems , and to prevent and reduce the risk of illness related to drinking water.

Public Health Inspectors (PHIs) inspect Small Drinking water Systems both on a routine and complaint-related basis to ensure any un-safe drinking-water conditions are corrected in a timely manner. A report about each inspection is prepared and posted online that includes outstanding infractions at the conclusion of the inspection. If necessary, follow-up inspections are conducted to ensure compliance. Inspection reports are uploaded to the website within two business days after they are completed and remain on OPH's disclosure website for two years.

Inspection results are also available on the City of Ottawa's Open Data Catalogue.
