AboutWaterSystems.org provides access to resources which help water systems to provide safe, secure and sustainable water supplies. We include resources that meet the needs of small and medium sized water systems, those with less than 10,000 connections.
AboutWaterSystems.org is operated by the Sustainable Infrastructure Society. We work in cooperation with other water-related organizations. We have well-established links with regional water suppliers organizations, the memberships of which are largely composed of water suppliers both large and small. ______________________________
Sustainable Infrastructure Society
The Sustainable Infrastructure Society (SIS) was incorporated in 2005 as a non-profit society. It began life with an office on the campus of the University of Victoria (UVIC) in Victoria, British Columbia. The society was established with support from the BC Ministry of Health and the Innovation and Development Corporation of the University of Victoria. The mission of SIS is to create and deliver resources to support community water suppliers and other infrastructure organizations. _____________________________
