The City's mandate is to provide and sustain an adequate supply of good clean water now and into the future. This is made possible through the development and use of programs that include long range planning, system operation, system maintenance and capital works.
Water at the turn of a tap - we receive one of the most precious resources. It is essential to our health and vital to our growing community, yet as a gift, it is too often under-valued. Most of us rarely think of where it comes from or how. The reality is, as our population grows, so does our demand for water, and therefore the need for careful planning and wise use of water.
Our Most Precious Resource
