Water & Sewers
We're fortunate to have some of the best drinking water in the world. Coming from mountain watersheds, our drinking water is either treated locally or purchased from Metro Vancouver. It is then delivered to your taps through an infrastructure that includes a complex network of mains, pump stations and treatment areas.
While we are accustomed to having an abundance of this importance resource, we also know that the cost of maintaining the system and occasional periods of drought make it important to conserve it. Residents pay for their water used through a metering system, which helps track useage and find ways to conserve.
Most water that comes out of your tap ends up going down the drain, and that's reflected in the sewer charge on your utility bill. It's important to think about what you put down the drain, because there is a cost to maintaining them as well.
