Attention: There are individuals going door-to-door claiming to represent the City's water department, selling water filtration systems. Surrey's water meets all the Canadian Drinking Water Quality Guidelines and does not need to be filtered through a system in your home. If you have questions about your water quality, please call 604-591-4340.

We provide safe and clean drinking water to residents and businesses all throughout Surrey.
