The Regional District of North Okanagan - Greater Vernon Water (GVW) supplies and delivers water to customers in the City of Vernon, the District of Coldstream, and Electoral Areas “B” and “C”.  GVW also supplies and delivers water to customers in Electoral Area “D”, and bulk water to the Township of Spallumcheen.

GVW's primary goal is to ensure the economical supply and distribution of a sufficient quantity and quality of water in the interests of both agricultural and non-agricultural users in the Greater Vernon Community.

Master Water Plan

The original Master Water Plan was undertaken in 2002 and amended in 2004.  An update of the MWP was completed in 2012.  The purpose of the Master Water Plan is to ensure that our community’s present and future water quality and water supply needs, as well as critical health protection goals are met in an efficient and financially sustainable manner. The Master Water Plan provides direction for the long-term planning and implementation of water system improvements with the provision of continuing the importance of a cost effective agricultural irrigation water supply.

The start of operations at the Duteau Creek Water Treatment Plant marks a significant step towards realizing the domestic water quality improvements envisioned by the Master Water Plan.
