Administrative history

The Water Works Department was established in 1892 when the City took over control of the water system from the Vancouver Waterworks Company. The function of the department was to carry out the planning, construction, maintenance and repair of the water system in the City. In 1912, with Bylaw #920, the City Engineer became formally responsible for the department. The Water Works Department was dissolved in 1936 when it was amalgamated with the Engineering Department.

Custodial history

Scope and content

Series consists of a record of applications for water service, in chronological order by date of application. Entries are numbered consecutively and the applicant's name, address, and city lot number are recorded. The earlier volume was begun by the Vancouver Water Works Company, a private utility which supplied the city's water before the City took it over.
