"Standing Guard for Your Water"

About Us

Aquifer Water Guard is a business that was and is established to meet the demands of the Ministry of Environment's Regulation 170/03 and Regulations 318/08 and 319/08 as they apply to Municipal and privately owned and publicly accessed establishments. We also offer to the private residence a water treatment system that offers peace of mind and reliability of clean safe drinking water.

We have a variety of services that any of our clients may wish to enlist all or individual components of our services. These services are both cost effective and reliable for your "bottom line."

Aquifer Water Guard was started by Scott Gillespie as a result of recent Ontario Provincial legislation that created a niche of service needing to be filled. Scott's water treatment experience began under the former Ontario Ministry Environment Regulation 459 and continued with a number of training courses on well maintenance, water treatment and filtration, Water Treatment Fundamentals and Preventing Water Borne Illnesses. All Operators with AWG are well trained and experienced in WT Plant monitoring. AWG is commercially insured for $2,000,000 liability through CREECHURCH.

Presently Aquifer Water Guard services an area covering Brant County, Haldimand-Norfolk, Oxford, Cambridge/Waterloo Region and Rural Hamilton in the Province of Ontario, Canada.


All Operators, Supervised Persons have received WHMIS training, Sampling training and hands-on experience sampling for Lead, Bacterial, Organic and Inorganic sampling.
