One of the more significant stories that Water Today reported on in 2017 regarding New Brunswick water was the frequency with which the community of Riverside-Albert experienced boil orders. In the spring, while other parts of the country were coping with major flooding, we saw that the province wasn't suffering anything out of the ordinary.

Of the nine provinces, we have looked at for the Year End Review New Brunswick's 66 ranks at the bottom, giving the province the distinction of having the lowest number of reported water advisories. Even though numbers are up 16.7% this year, New Brunswick has remained constant with the fewest reported water issues.

Last year the province averaged 4.25 advisories per month, and monthly totals ranged between 1 and 7. This year, however, numbers ranged from 0 to 20 and had an average of 5.5 advisories monthly.

In 2016 New Brunswick reported higher numbers in the late winter and again in the summer. Whereas this year high figures were published in January and again July through September. Low numbers aside, the province appears to have two periods of the year where advisory numbers are higher than the others.

New Brunswick's low numbers mean that it has the lowest reported number of water advisories of the Maritimes. The province will look to maintain the trend of modest water advisory totals in 2018. Next, we head into the St. Lawrence as we look at Qu├ębec.
