Drinking water conservation


The City of Dollard-des-Ormeaux would like to raise awareness of the value of water and reduce the use of this precious resource.

Less than 1 % of the earth’s water supply can be used as drinking water. Using water efficiently and avoiding waste are fundamental to ensuring water availability in the future. Every little drop helps, so let’s all make an effort today!

Looking to be environmentally responsible, have a water meter installed!

The Quebec Strategy for Drinking Water Conservation, adopted by the Quebec government, requires all municipalities to produce a precise balance sheet on water use and to reduce the quantity of water distributed per person.

In order to comply with this government directive, the City must install residential water meters on a voluntary basis. The data collected will be used to establish statistics on water consumption in the territory and also to detect and locate leaks more quickly, thus avoiding waste.

The City will provide and install the water meter free of charge.
