The City’s Main Distribution System involves a network of water mains that deliver water from the John Hart Water Quality Centre through the City to over 10,000 residential connections, 650 Industrial, Commercial, and Institutional (ICI) customers, and bulk supply to three First Nations Reserves and Area D of the Strathcona Regional District. The City’s Industrial Park System delivers water from Snowden Forest Pump Station to PRT, industrial users, and a small group of residents.

Water is supplied into the Main Distribution System by gravity through bulk transmission mains to five pressure zones. The pressure zones are controlled by 30 pressure reducing stations. During high demand conditions, the Evergreen Reservoir and Beaver Lodge Forest Reservoir increases supply and pressure to the central and southern areas of the system. The main distribution system delivers water through a network of pipes that stretch over 13 km along the ocean. The distribution system is comprised of many components including pressure reducing valves, hydrants, valves and water mains and is one of the most complex medium sized distribution systems existing in British Columbia.

The Industrial Park System is supplied from Snowden Forest Pump Station along Snowden Road to the Snowden Forest Reservoir and through a pipe network that services the Industrial Park and various residents in the area.
