Water and Wastewater

The municipality provides high quality water. It is the responsibility of the community to use it wisely.

Drinking Water

Whistler's water quality standards are very high and drinking water is safe to drink straight from the tap. A reusable water bottle is all you need to stay hydrated on the go.

It can be easy to forget that water is a precious and limited resource even in Whistler where we receive a considerable amount of rain. It doesn't take long though for water supplies to run short during a drought period in the summer months.

The RMOW operates one of the most advanced wastewater treatment facilities in Canada. Nearly every property in Whistler is connected to the municipal sewage system.
