Welcome to the Qualicum Bay Horne Lake Waterworks District

The Qualicum Bay Horne Lake Water District provides potable water to the residents and businesses of Qualicum Bay, located on Vancouver Island, BC. The District was formed by the Letters Patent in 1968.

There are currently 506 active water connections and 478 land parcels in the District.  These connections are serviced by 3 wells and 2 glass infused steel reservoirs which hold approximately 110,000 imperial gallons/500,000 liters each. The three wells are considered medium deep wells  between 60 - 80 feet deep, and produce approximately 450 gallons of water per minute. The wells are located on the Quadra Sands Aquifer which is of high quality, and is suitable for human consumption without treatment. 

The water distribution system was constructed in phases over a period of more than 4 decades, with the original lines first built in the late 1960's. The current system consists of approximately 17, 550 metres (17.5 km) of distribution water lines.
