The water supplies of more than 97% percent of Yukon residents come from groundwater sources.

In 2003 the Government of Canada transferred its responsibility for management of the water resources of the Yukon, to the Yukon government. 

The Environment Yukon Water Resources page describes that department's water responsibilities, the associated legislation and regulations and provides other water-related information. 

The Yukonwater website provides information and resources to understand and use Yukon's water resources.
