At the Windsor Utilities Commission, our mandate is to deliver an abundance of clean, reliable and safe water that enhances the quality of life of Windsor's residences and businesses.
We are proud to deliver tap water into our customers' homes that exceeds Ontario's water quality standards. Clean water plays a fundamental role in helping to establish the quality of our lives.
Relationship Between ENWIN Utilities Ltd. and Windsor Utilities Commission (WUC) - The Windsor Utilities Commission (WUC) has outsourced all of its operations to ENWIN through a Water System Operating Agreement (WSOA). These services help to produce, deliver and maintain WUC assets. WUC is the legal owner of the water assets. They regulate water rates, water quality and conservation efforts. WUC's focus is on rate control, cost control and compliance, making the management of these essential functions easier without the additional responsibility of having to run a highly technical business on a day-to-day basis.
