Environment / Drinking Water Systems


The British Columbia Drinking Water Protection Act establishes standards for source protection, water quality and system operations to provide safe drinking water.

Certified Regional District of Fraser-Fort George (RDFFG) staff operate two groundwater source drinking water supply systems, established as local service areas.

Residents and businesses within each local service area pay expenses required to construct and operate the water services.

Water Conservation Strategy

Conservation strategies for water and waste water systems are under development to ensure that water resources are managed and consumed in a sustainable manner.

Emergency Response Plans

To ensure a reliable water supply the Regional District developed an Emergency Response Plan for both the Azu and Bear Lake small waterworks systems based on the criteria of the BC Drinking Water Protection Act.
