Do you own a restaurant, campground, trailer park, gas station, or any other system that provides water to more than one household or property? If your water system makes drinking water available to the public and you do not get your water from a municipal drinking water system, you may be an owner or operator of a small water system.
The RDN wants to assist small water purveyors within the boundaries of the Regional District by providing networking and educational opportunities through a Water Purveyor Working Group (WPWG). The WPWG will provide an opportunity to meet other owners and operators of small water systems in your area, share ideas, and learn more about the sustainable operation of your system.
