The District of Vanderhoof is pleased to announce it has acquired the Northside Water Utility. The assets and customers of the utility have been incorporated into the Municipal Waterworks Utility and the District has assumed operations and maintenance of the infrastructure.
The District of Vanderhoof has taken a strategic approach in the decision to purchase Northside Water. Our ownership of the utility allows us to leverage municipal opportunities that allow for growth and development. No tax increase was required for the purchase as it was funded from the Community Forest Reserve which may, by bylaw, be used for such purposes.
We would like to thank the Manwaring family for their many years of providing the District of Vanderhoof northside residents with quality service and drinking water. The District of Vanderhoof is pleased to continue to provide consistent, high quality drinking water as did the previous owners.
We ask for your patience in the coming months as we complete our transition of the operations. Any questions on the transfer or billing should be directed to the District of Vanderhoof finance department at 250-567-4711.
