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.
