We are thankful to have some of the cleanest drinking water in the entire world right here in Whistler.
Whistler drinking water comes from alpine snow that melts into lakes and streams and replenishes the groundwater. When the alpine water is cloudy, water is sourced from thirteen groundwater wells.
The RMOW focuses on source water protection so that the treatment of source water is effective. Once the water is treated, it enters the reservoir, which is kept full to ensure Whistler always has enough water in case of fire.
Whistler’s water then travels from the reservoir through a pipe network straight to our property for guests and staff to enjoy!
Whistler’s water system is sophisticated and has many measures in place to ensure its safety. The operation, maintenance, and capital replacement of the system is funded by the Water Utility Fund.
