Groundwater Sampling & Testing

Analysis of Discharge Water

Analysis of Discharge Water

Under the City of Toronto Municipal Code Chapter 681, Sewers, regulates the discharge of Private water directly or indirectly to a city sanitary sewer or combined sewer.

Testing is mandatory for those who discharge water either in a city sewer or combined sewer. All testing must be done by a qualified organization, such as Neotec.

Neotec has the ability to design, install and service discharge water treatment systems, along with being able to sample and test discharge water.

Annual testing and meter calibration is mandatory; Neotec offers annual testing and meter calibration.

All testing and delivery of results must be submitted no later than May 15th.


Here at Neotec, we are looking to ensure that discharge water sampling and testing is done in compliance to Chapter 681 under the City of Toronto Municipal Code. With years of experience in testing and treating discharge water, we have the ability to provide timely, accurate, and descriptive results of the water.

Neotec holds the ability to conduct a sample of the Private Water to be discharged to confirm that the Private Water discharged from its premises will comply with Chapter 681.
