Water Today has reported on many water advisories, and water issues in Ontario over the past year. There was the Mysterious advisory in Spanish in July, the water issues in Lynnwood Gardens, and uranium concerns in northwestern Ontario.

If that were not enough, like its regional counterpart, Ontario was walloped by spring flooding.

Water advisories for the province of Ontario were on the rise in 2017. There were 144 reported this year, which is an 18.75% increase over the 117 published in 2016.

Despite the augmented totals, Ontario's rank did not change, and the province maintained the 6th highest total in the country. The province saw nine months in 2017 with number superior to those witnessed in 2016.

Canada's most populated province averaged 12 advisories a month, compared to the 9.75 per month in 2016.

Advisory reports ranged between 3 and 27 this year, up slightly from 2016 which saw numbers between 2 and 19. Ontario's peak months for water advisories appears to be May and September, and late spring through early fall is the period where most advisories are experienced. At no point did advisories reach 30 or more, and except for two months of the year, advisory numbers remained below 20.

Coming up next we enter the west and take our first look at a Prairie province, Manitoba.
