Water System Engineering & Operations

The City of Vancouver's Water Utility, maintained and operated by Vancouver Public Works, is the fourth largest provider of drinking water in the state of Washington. In 2011, we served up more than 8.95 billion gallons of water to about 230,000 people within the city and a portion of the unincorporated area. Our drinking water not only meets all state and federal requirements, it frequently surpasses them in terms of highest quality. In fact, Vancouver puts its water through far more stringent tests than U.S. and Washington laws require.
