We often take for granted the natural resources as well as the pipes, pumps and people that deliver safe and reliable water and wastewater services to our home and businesses each day. Take a moment to celebrate the value of our water resources and systems during BC Water Week from May 1-7, 2016!
Tap water: there is no substitute
Tap water protects our health, environment, and quality of life. We all rely on clean, safe water to drink and wash, and to flush waste from our homes and businesses. Our water systems deliver fire protection and support our economy. Because of tap water, we stay hydrated, healthy and happy.
Investment in water systems protects our health, environment and quality of life
While water is provided by nature, there is a real cost for the pipes, pumps, equipment and people who ensure it is safely delivered to our taps and returned to the environment every day. Aging infrastructure, population growth, strengthened regulations, seismic hazards, and climate change are driving the need to invest in upgrades and renewal of our water systems. If we aren’t willing to pay for these essential systems, our health and prosperity will be at risk.
Show your love for BC water!
We are all stewards of our water systems, for this generation and the next. Help protect our source waters from pollution, practice water conservation, and encourage our elected officials to make water and sewer system renewal a top priority for community investment.
