Working 24/7 to help deliver clean, reliable drinking water, Public Works ensures the delivery of a safe and reliable water distribution system and provides dependable storm and sanitary sewer system services for our community.
Humboldt's water is purchased from SaskWater's Wakaw-Humboldt regional potable water system. This system supplies potable water to our community through a pipeline network from the South Saskatchewan River.
Our community enjoys an extremely high quality of water and, every year, the City provides notification to consumers about the quality of water produced and supplied.

Water Distribution Plant Upgrades
The City of Humboldt’s Water Distribution Plant, located at 1201 Main Street, is currently receiving some upgrades. These upgrades include replacement of piping and electronics within the station as well as an additional reservoir for increased water capacity. The upgrades began earlier this year and will continue until early 2017. The upgrades are being done to help accommodate the growing population of Humboldt and surrounding area. The project is partially funded by the Federal and Provincial Governments’ New Building Canada Fund – Small Communities Fund.
The Public Works and Utilities Department set up a camera to record the work being done over the past few months. Take a look at the video below, showing early-stage construction.
Wakaw-Humboldt Regional Water Supply System Upgrades
The Wakaw-Humboldt Regional Water Supply System has been receiving some upgrades in 2017. Key upgrades include:
- Larger water reservoir for increased capacity; and
- Installation of a back-up generator in case of power outages.
The upgrades are well received for the communities that use the water services.
With a back-up generator now installed, Drinking Water Advisories will be less frequent due to power outages as the water lines will remain pressurized even if the power goes out.
