Surrey residents enjoy some of the best water in the world. To provide and maintain this kind of water quality requires the joint effort of Metro Vancouver, City of Surrey, and Surrey residents and businesses.
Metro Vancouver is responsible for the supply, treatment and delivery of high quality water. The City of Surrey is responsible for maintaining the quality in its distribution system by flushing, regular maintenance, water quality monitoring, and working with residents to prevent contaminants from entering the water system.
Residents are responsible for installing, maintaining, and testing backflow preventers under the City of Surrey’s Cross Connection Control Program.
Fifty-one water sampling sites help monitor Surrey’s water quality. City and Metro Vancouver staff collect samples every week. Temperature, turbidity, chlorine residual, and bacteria levels are analyzed.
