Our local tap water. It's in all our local foods. It makes up 78% of us, and that's a good thing. After all, Sooke Lake Reservoir is fed by a protected, forested watershed, which means our water supply is naturally clean and clear.
Bottled water is up to 1,000 times more expensive than Greater Victoria's drinking water. So make the pledge to drink CRD municipal tap water from now on. To date, almost 9,000 residents have taken the Tap in Sustainability Pledge and received their reuseable stainless steel water bottle. All free stainless steel bottles have been distributed to residents and are no longer available for pickup. By taking the pledge you are making the promise to avoid using bottled water and always choose to drink local tap water!
