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.

Update: Michigan Shoreline Collapse
ENWIN is informing customers that the utility is aware of the recent riverbank collapse at the Detroit Bulk Storage property in Michigan.
According to the Essex Region Conservation Authority's (ERCA’s) Source Water Protection Plan, the location of the incident is significantly downstream from ENWIN’s system, and should pose no threat to Windsor’s drinking water intake, located in the Detroit River. The Ministry of the Environment Conservation and Parks (MECP) has also confirmed that there is no threat to the local water supply.
Based on the information provided by these provincial government agencies, ENWIN is advising that the water produced and distributed to its customers is safe for consumption.
Nevertheless, out of an abundance of caution, ENWIN has commenced additional special testing of the drinking water intake, and will continue to monitor the situation, communicate with the MECP, and provide updates to the public, as they are available.
It is that time of year again! This a reminder that as the weather gets colder, any open or exposed piping in your home is susceptable to freezing. Please visit the WUC Education section to ensure your home is protected. For more information on Frozen Pipes, click here.

Both the City of Windsor and Town of Tecumseh have passed by-laws on March 25, 2019 and April 9, 2019 respectively, to reintroduce fluoride into the City of Windsor Drinking Water System. These by-laws support the requirement of the Fluoridation Act that a majority of municipalities (two out of three) served by the Drinking Water System, must pass a by-law to add fluoride. As a result, WUC has begun the process to reintroduce fluoride to Windsor's Drinking Water System.
