What We Provide

Water & Wastewater Systems

In 2019–20, SaskWater delivered over 44 billion litres of water to customers across Saskatchewan.

Potable Water

SaskWater helps communities grow and thrive through potable water services that deliver safe and reliable drinking water to municipalities, First Nations, industry, rural pipeline groups and individual users.

Our mandate enables us to purchase and operate municipal water infrastructure or to construct new water supply and water treatment systems. SaskWater currently owns and operates stand-alone systems in White City, Pierceland, Edenwold, Gravelbourg and Cupar.

For some communities, regional water supply systems are the most cost-effective and sustainable option. We supply potable water to 21 communities and several rural pipeline groups through regional systems in Wakaw, Melfort, Elbow, Melville and Meadow Lake.

Non-Potable Water

SaskWater’s non-potable water supply is delivered in large volumes to industrial customers including potash mines and fertilizer manufacturers. We have the capabilities and expertise to construct, manage and maintain water supplies, allowing our partners to focus on the success of their core business.

We also help municipal customers with their non-potable water requirements. These customers own water treatment facilities and perform their own treatment processes prior to residential delivery.

SaskWater currently owns and operates non-potable water systems in the areas surrounding Saskatoon, Buffalo Pound Lake, and along the Saskatoon Southeast Water Supply System.

Wastewater Treatment & Management

Along with potable and non-potable water supply, wastewater treatment and management is a core part of our business for our municipal and industrial customers. We design, build and operate a variety of wastewater systems that meet or exceed regulatory requirements.

Environmentally sustainable wastewater treatment and disposal solutions are an increasingly important part of water management. One of our primary goals when designing wastewater treatment systems and management services is minimal discharge to the environment. These systems include lagoon-based treatment, complex mechanical treatment systems and effluent irrigation, including the development of an effluent disposal process involving a woodlot with zero discharge to the environment.

Currently, SaskWater owns and operates wastewater facilities in Nipawin, Pierceland and Fort Qu’Appelle. The Pierceland facility is a stand-alone system. The Nipawin and Fort Qu’Appelle facilities are regional wastewater systems serving multiple customers either through force mains or dump stations for commercial truck haulers.
