Safe drinking water


As part of the Greenest City initiative, Council will supply Vancouver residents with the cleanest drinking water of any city in the world by 2020.

We already closely monitor the City's drinking water quality, to ensure that it meets or exceeds all federal and provincial water quality standards and guidelines.
