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

The SSID aquifer contains clean untreated drinking water. We test the water from 8 locations in Savary Shores for the Monthly Water Reports on e-coli and total coliforms (both usually zero), and do Nitrates Tests from both wells quarterly. 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.
