Follow these steps carefully so that the sterile water sample bottle obtained from the laboratory does not become contaminated, and sample water only intended for drinking water (i.e. do not sample from untreated lake water).
Bottles can be dropped off to a health unit office (except for the Orillia and 80 Bradford Street, Barrie offices). Please do not submit bottles on a Friday to any health unit office.
Sample bottles can also be taken directly to the Public Health Laboratory at 750 Memorial Ave., Orillia (across from OPP Headquarters) Monday to Friday.
