The Kamloops Centre for Water Quality (KCWQ), commissioned in 2005, uses innovative membrane filtration technology to provide high quality drinking water to residents and visitors.
"Green" building technology was used extensively in the construction of the KCWQ to maximize efficiency, prevent pollution and contribute to the sustainability of our community.
The KCWQ also contains laboratories and classrooms built as part of a research and training partnership between the City of Kamloops, and Thompson Rivers University. This Centre for Safe Water Excellence will provide opportunities for water quality research and training in a working water treatment plant, the first facility of its kind in North America.
Please note that tours are temporarily suspended due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
