The management of drinking water is the shared responsibility of all levels of government. Community governments are responsible for operating and maintaining Water Treatment Plants (WTPs). The Government of the Northwest Territories (GNWT) is responsible for the regulation of water supply systems providing certification training and support to WTP operators and for working collaboratively with stakeholders to implement the NWT Water Stewardship Strategy. The GNWT also inspects WTPs and reviews water quality data from communities to ensure the treated water is safe.
