Fun facts
  • Almost half of our drinking water comes from right here in West Vancouver—Eagle Lake and Montizambert Creek can supply up to 45% of the District’s total water demand.
  • Eagle Lake Water Treatment Facility is capable of processing 21 million litres of water each day to the residents of West Vancouver. This is the equivalent of filling the pool at the West Vancouver Community Centre 15 times.
  • Our tap water exceeds guidelines for Canadian drinking water quality.
  • West Vancouver’s water is metered—when you use less, you pay less.
  • Our water use doubles in the summer largely due to lawn watering, power-washing, and other outdoor use.
  • Conserving water helps keep our environment healthy, reduces stress on our water system, and saves money.
