Event Information

This five and a half hour tour aims to educate the public on where their water comes from and how it is treated to provide the highest quality drinking water. The tour follows the flow of the water supply starting at the north end of Sooke Lake Reservoir and explores the surrounding forests, Rithet Creek (main tributary to Sooke Lake Reservoir), water supply facilities and the treatment process that ensures the water delivered to your tap is the highest quality. The tour also includes a short forest walk.
