Glenmore Ellison Improvement District

GEID, and the water treatment process

Glenmore Ellison Improvement District (GEID) is an independent Public Water Utility. Approximately 19,000 people in Kelowna, B.C and parts of the Regional District of the Central Okanagan use this service. Most importantly it has undertaken the large responsibility to make improvements the the water treatment process.


Over the past eleven years the GEID had been making improvements to the water treatment process in the area. It is the GEID’s responsibility to reach out to the public about these improvements. I was contracted to do photography, video, and graphic design. Click here for a link to the video

A public mailer was the real focus of this project. A double sided, full colour, trifold letter was mailed out to educate the public about the improvements to the water treatment process. The improvements were necessary to allow for future growth as well as improve water quality in the area. The the completion of the upgrades the GEID has now lifted the water advisory for the Glenmore area. 

Project overview

To clearly depict the water treatment process was the first goal. The mailer did this through it’s simple illustrations on the back which depict the facilities in sequence. Photos of the actual components in operation further assisted in the explanation of the process. The reader can also use the QR code next to the illustration to visit a video further explaining the water treatment process. Furthermore all of these; the video; photos; and mailer, provide an excellent record of the progress that the GEID has made.

Because the GEID were so happy with the results of the project I have been invited to shoot for them next year after the completion of similar improvements to the Ellison District.
