Consumption of drinking water
|Thank you to everyone who participated in our water saving kit distribution initiative. You can pick yours up as soon as Monday, June 19th at the Public Works counter at City Hall (451 Saint-Jean Boulevard).|
We often take for granted one of our most precious resources – clean drinking water. Without even realizing it, we use water every day, especially in the kitchen, bathroom and laundry room. During hot summer days, our consumption only further increases with yard work and the outdoor leisure activities we do to cool off.
And so, here are a few tips to consume it more responsibly:
To encourage citizens to take concrete action regarding their water consumption, the City of Pointe-Claire will give away 250 water-saving kits to residents of Pointe-Claire. As of June 1, 2023, residents will be able to reserve their kit using an online form on the City’s website, on a first-come, first-served basis.
By filling out the form, you will have the choice between two sets: one including a fixed shower head and two sink faucet heads (50 kits available) or another including a telephone-style shower head and two sink faucets (200 kits available). Citizens will be able to pick up the kit of their choice at the Public Works counter at City Hall (451 Saint-Jean Boulevard) as of June 19, 2023. You will need to present your MULTI card to obtain your water saving kit.
Rain barrels allow you to reduce your clean water consumption. The barrel is available at the multiservice counter at City Hall (451 Saint-Jean Boulevard) for $40. Your MULTI Card is required.
Each residence can have a maximum of three barrels.

You can evaluate how much drinking water you consume by looking at your annual water bill. It will tell you how much drinking water you consumed and you can evaluate the impact of the actions you took to reduce your consumption. This user-payer format encourages actions to limit water waste and to help conserve this precious natural resource.
