Built in 1993, the Faulder Water System is located 12 kilometers west of Summerland. Water is pumped from a deep ground well (known as a ground water source) through the distribution system to a storage reservoir with no chemical treatment.

Information regarding the proposed Summerland option:
The design of the pipeline to link the Faulder community to the District of Summerland's water system has produced some unexpected cost estimates.
