About Us

About Pembina Valley Water Cooperative Inc.

In the early 90s, a number of municipalities in south-central Manitoba formed the Pembina Valley Water Cooperative Inc. (PVWC). Their goal was to develop a regional approach to supplying potable water in an area that lacked wide distribution of good, plentiful water resources, but that also exhibited the highest rate of economic growth of any region in Manitoba.

The PVWC, a privately held not-for-profit cooperative owned by fourteen member municipalities, offers a regional approach to producing and distributing high-quality potable water. The PVWC pipeline distribution system covers a service area of 9,000 square kilometers and serves a population base of approximately 50,000 people. The head office is located in Altona, Manitoba, with water treatment plants in Letellier, Morris, and Stephenfield.
