There are 14 organized water systems on Mayne Island, of which 12 are MIIWSS members.
• 2 CRD managed districts
• 4 private, either Societies, co-ops or strata holdings
• 6 Improvement Districts as regulated under British Columbia law.
In 2007, there were a total of 1035 lots within the 12 systems with 820 connected to the water supplied from 26 wells located in the general area of each system. The balance of the island is serviced by wells, either individually owned supplying a single residence, private strata, or unregulated communal wells servicing about 2 to 4 homes.
MIID is responsible for potable water supply to the Mayne Island Fire Hall, BC Ambulance Station, and Health Centre buildings. A certified Small Water Systems operator is employed to oversee the water systems.
