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 an incomplete sequence of water payments (1892-1893, 1900, 1902, ca. 1905?, 1914-1920). The 1892-1893 record indicates the company name, the volume of water consumed, and the associated costs; the 1900 and 1902 volumes show the owner's name and payment record; the 1919 volume contains also plumbing details (e.g. no. of toilets). A separate volume contains properties which were deemed out of the ordinary and is complete for 1914-1920. Arranged chronologically.
