What is the Road Quality Management Standard (RQMS)?
In 2009, the Public Works Department implemented a quality management system (QMS) for its drinking water system. This system was put in place to meet legislation that required all municipalities who operate public drinking water systems to implement a QMS which conformed to the Ministry of Environment’s Drinking Water Quality Management Standard (DWQMS). The following year, the Town received formal accreditation for its drinking water QMS and since that time, has been successfully operating under this system.
Given its experience with the drinking water QMS, the Town decided it would be beneficial to follow a similar approach towards its road/transportation related infrastructure (i.e. roads, bridges, sidewalks, signage, storm sewers, etc.). In 2015 the Public Works Department established a roads QMS under a modified version of the MOE’s DWQMS. The modified standard is referred to as the Roads Quality Management Standard, or RQMS.
