In 1887, the Charlottetown Water Works Act was passed in the provincial legislature and a Commission was elected a month later.  The Commission continued until amalgamation in 1995 when water and sewer became a department with the City of Charlottetown.

The City continues to strive to provide a safe and adequate water supply to the citizens of the City as well as collection and treatment of wastewater.

The Utility department comprises of three functional areas providing water and sanitary sewer services to the City of Charlottetown.

  1. Wastewater treatment
  2. Works
  3. Engineering

In addition to these three areas the City’s Finance department manages the customer accounts for the Utility.
