Find out where your drinking water comes from

CRD hosting Regional Water Supply H2O open house on June 20

Do you ever wonder where your drinking water comes from?

The Regional Water Supply H2O open house on June 20 will answer your question.

Capital Regional District residents will get a behind-the-scenes peek at the history of the regional water supply system that provides drinking water to Greater Victoria.

This year is the 100th anniversary of Sooke Lake Reservoir and the origins of the regional water supply system, which continues to provide a reliable supply of clean and safe drinking water.

The CRD treats and delivers an average of 130 million litres of water every day.

Activities at the open house include bus tours, children’s entertainment, forest firefighting training challenge, petting zoo, water-themed photo booth and food trucks.

The open house runs from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at CRD Watershed Field Operations Centre, 2995 Sooke Lake Road.
