Learn about our history:
The Regional District of North Okanagan - Greater Vernon Water (GVW) supplies water to customers in the City of Vernon, the District of Coldstream, and Electoral Areas “B” and “C”. GVW also supplies 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. GVW is committed to protecting public, environmental, and economic health through a comprehensive “source-to-tap” approach.
Master Water Plan
The purpose of the GVW Master Water Plan is to provide direction for infrastructure management to ensure that our community’s present and future water quality and water supply needs are met in an efficient and financially sustainable manner.
