You can drink a toast to BC's drinking water.
A new report by Provincial Health Officer Doctor Perry Kendall finds improvement in drinking water systems around the province between 2007 and 2009.
Kendall says there were no community outbreaks of water-borne illness during that period, and one thousand more water systems obtained valid operating permits.
There were more boil water advisories issued, but Kendall says that's a result of more assessments of small systems.
