Savary Shores Improvement District was incorporated in 1980 to provide drinking water to residents of Savary Shores. Residents pay for the water service, its operations, infrastructure and administration, in annual tax levies issued by SSID, in accordance with BC Provincial regulations.

Savary Shores includes 216 lots, of which 167 are currently serviced with water connections. Water is pumped from 2 wells drawing on Savary Island's main aquifer about 110 feet below ground.

The SSID aquifer contains clean untreated drinking water. We conduct Monthly Water Reports from 8 locations in Savary Shores to test for e-coli and total coliforms, and quarterly as of 2020 (previously monthly) Nitrates Tests from both wells. Twice each year, a Full-Spectrum analysis shows the levels of multiple components of our water. We also provide an Annual Report on the waterworks to the Drinking Water Officer.
