City Water

As the population of Abbotsford grows to 200,000 people, the City is working to ensure our infrastructure for city water will meet the needs of a growing population.  

Water is supplied to the City’s distribution system from the Abbotsford Mission Water & Sewer Commission (AMWSC). Sources of water include Cannell Lake, Norrish Creek (slow sand filtration and membrane plant) and 19 groundwater wells of the community.

 

background

Abbotsford’s Official Community Plan (OCP), adopted in June 2016, provides a vision and a framework for how Abbotsford will grow to a population of 200,000. We are now reviewing and updating existing Master Plans and Studies to ensure all of our future operations, development, infrastructure, services, amenities and programs align with the vision set out in our OCP. 

The City provides municipal water to approximately 132,000 people.  The system receives its water from Norrish Creek, Cannell Lake, and various groundwater wells in the City.  The water is distributed through approximately 910 km of pipe.  The system also includes 10 reservoirs, 12 pump stations, and 24 PRV stations.
