THUNDER BAY – NEWS – The City of Thunder Bay has issued the 2014 Drinking Water Quality Annual Report.
“This report contains detailed information about the City’s drinking water system and the quality of our water,” said Kerri Marshall, Director – Environment Division. “Our City’s water is monitored 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
