Info for Water Users

You too can be WaterSafe.

Everyone is a water user. Most of us in BC get our water from a convenient tap inside our homes. Now, with growing pressure on our supply of water, we are quite sensibly paying more attention to where it comes from and how it reaches us.

Informed, well trained water system owners and operators play a vital role in helping to conserve our water and keep it safe to drink. But we can help.

Register to take the WaterSafe course and be well trained and informed as well.
