    The Value of Quality Water

    Quality water is a key contributor to a sustainable community. Communities offering quality water are able to retain and grow their populations, attract business and industry, expand community services and assure resident health and well-being. Contracted utility services from SaskWater provide communities with a distinct quality advantage and access to: 

    • Capital investment dollars
    • Assurance to meet regulatory requirements
    • Certified operators - local employment opportunities
    • Operations and engineering support services
    • Capital improvement planning
    • Minimized liability and risk

    Communities typically contact us when they are experiencing the following water related issues:  

    • Water quality concerns
    • Regulatory requirements
    • Concerns about water quantity and supply sources
    • Difficulty retaining certified operators
    • Regional project management
    • Planning capital infrastructure upgrades
    • Evaluating system sustainability

    SaskWater's focus is the sourcing and treatment of water for supply to communities and the treatment and disposal of wastewater. Our municipal customers own and manage their local distribution systems and the relationship with their residents. SaskWater essentially provides wholesale water delivery service to the community, who then deliver service to its residents.
