Public Consultation: Strontium in Drinking Water

The Federal-Provincial-Territorial Committee on Drinking Water (CDW) has assessed the available information on strontium, with the intent of developing a drinking water guideline and guideline technical document on strontium in drinking water. The purpose of this consultation is to solicit comments on the proposed guideline, on the approach used for its development and on the potential economic costs of implementing it, as well as to determine the availability of additional exposure data.

A maximum acceptable concentration (MAC) of 7.0 mg/L is proposed for strontium in drinking water, based on bone effects in rats and using currently available scientific studies and approaches. This guideline technical document provides exposure information as well as analytical methods and treatment technologies that may be effective for strontium removal at the municipal and residential scales. Comments can be submitted by email to the CDW Secretariat via email at  This email address is being protected from spambots.
