Water mains and infrastructure

Winnipeg’s water distribution system is the most expansive and expensive part of the waterworks system. It services approximately 344 square kilometres (133 square miles) of the developed part of Winnipeg.

Since completion in 1919, the aqueduct has provided a reliable water supply, and Winnipeg’s waterworks system has expanded to deliver an average of 225 million litres of water to approximately 270,000 Winnipeg households and businesses across Winnipeg.

The distribution system has several parts: branch aqueducts, feeder mains, water mains and customer connections.

We regularly clean, maintain, and replace parts of the water distribution system. If you notice any damaged infrastructure of our water distribution system, please contact us.
