Quebecers are among the largest consumers of drinking water in the world. Although water is abundant in Quebec, it is important to understand that it is not an everlasting resource. The provincial government’s 2019-2025 Drinking Water Conservation Strategy sets new objectives for the whole province.
By 2025, this strategy aims to achieve the following three objectives:
The Town of Montreal West, along with all municipalities in Quebec, must continue its efforts towards achieving these goals. Residents are also called upon to reduce their personal consumption of drinking water.
We invite all our residents to integrate simple actions into their daily lives and develop better habits.
WaterSense® kits allow you to optimize your hot water consumption and lower your electricity bill by more than $100 a year (for a family of four). The Town distributes free WaterSense® kits during its events to encourage residents to use water responsibly. A kit includes a showerhead (massage, rainfall or handheld), 2 faucet aerators, teflon tape, a shower timer and a flow meter bag.
