Public Works Water Utility

Water Utility

The City of Armstrong provides treated water to over 5,000 City residents plus six Water Districts located in the Township of Spallumcheen. The City operates two raw water sources, a surface water source and two groundwater wells within the City. Our crews ensure there is clean safe water available for residents. They maintain an extensive network of distribution lines that supply the City with water and look after maintaining our various water sources. 

Fortune Creek is a surface source of water that for most of the year provides high quality water with low turbidity. During the spring freshet, the City often switches over to our two groundwater wells as our main source of water. This helps our crews ensure that quality water remains available for our residents household use. 

While it may appear that there is an abundance of clean water in British Columbia, specifically the Okanagan, the province has seen noted reductions in the availability of clean source water and this is expected to worsen with population growth and climate change. 

The Okanagan region has historically been one of the highest consumers of water in Canada and Armstrong is often leading the numbers in water consumption.
