Northside Water founded by Richard Manwaring (Dick or Gramps) in 1964. When he built his home on the northside of Vanderhoof he had an artisian well drilled in his front yard, a neighbour also wanted water and one thing led to another and this began the quest of supplying utilities to the surrounding area. 33 years later Richards' oldest son Greg and his wife Elvira Manwaring decided to take over the business. Over the years the system has grown and presently we service approximately 230 connections, thus needing to hire another full time certified operator Wes Manwaring. We have a certified operator on call 24/7 365 days a year. Our customer service is priority and our goal is to provide safe, clean water.
