    SaskWater's non-potable water supply business refers to the delivery of water that is considered not suitable for human consumption in accordance with applicable regulations.

    The majority of SaskWater's non-potable water supply is delivered in large volumes to industrial customers for processing and manufacturing operations, including potash mines and fertilizer manufacturers.

    Municipal customers also purchase non-potable water from SaskWater. These customers own water treatment facilities and perform their own treatment processes prior to residential delivery.

    SaskWater currently owns and operates non-potable water systems in the areas surrounding Saskatoon, Buffalo Pound Lake, Regina and along the Saskatoon Southeast Water Supply System.


    In 2015-16, SaskWater delivered 47 billion litres of non-potable water.
