At Home Water Quality Testing Program

Please note that the intake for testing has now closed. If you have signed up as a potential participant, please note that only the 75 randomly selected residents will be contacted directly to arrange pick up of the testing kit and explain your next steps. If you were not selected, but are still interested in finding out your results, tests can be purchased for $38.85 (GST included) from Norlabs at 530 3rd Ave West.


The City of Prince Rupert and Northern Health are teaming up to help you better understand water quality in your home. We are looking for up to 75 households in the community to participate in a free water quality testing program that will help test for metal contaminants in your home water supply.

We know that the Boil Water Notice that ended in February brought up many concerns from community members regarding water quality, and we want to help you understand the issues. This page also has several informational resources and videos, listed in the column to the right.
