About Tap Water in Peel

How your tap water is treated

In the Region of Peel, drinking water comes from one of three sources:

  • Lake Ontario
  • A regionally-owned well
  • A private well
Regardless of the source of your water, the Region of Peel makes it a priority to ensure you have safe, clean drinking water every time you turn on the tap.

Treating water is the first step in the important process of supplying safe and reliable drinking water.

The Region of Peel owns two large water treatment facilities - Lakeview and Lorne Park - on the shore of Lake Ontario. The Ontario Clean Water Agency operates these facilities on behalf of the Region. These facilities provide water to the cities of Brampton and Mississauga and to some parts of the Town of Caledon.
