Using a system of aqueducts, which extend high up onto a nearby mountain stream, the Wilderness Centre is provided with a natural gravity-pressurized water system of crystal clear mountain spring water. In addition, this naturally pressurized water system drives a number of simple hydro turbines that generate electrical power, complimenting our solar power system. All drinking water is additionally filtered to ensure a safe and clean potable water supply. All hot water is heated with individual “on-demand” propane heaters at each cabin and the main lodge only when it is required.  If hot water is not required, it is not heated.
