In Rosemère, our source of water supply is the Mille-Îles River, which takes its source from the great basin of the Great Lakes, which, unfortunately, is experiencing a very low level this year. It is important to know that the low local precipitation that we have recently experienced has no influence on the level of the Mille-Îles River.
In order to maintain water quality, the current river conditions require us to make our surface water intake, thus substantially restricting the plant's production capacity. The quality of drinking water being the priority, this situation mainly explains the watering restriction currently in force.
It is therefore necessary to reduce our consumption of drinking water and to respect the watering ban. We are counting on your cooperation, otherwise you will be subject to fines. Please note that an increased surveillance is exercised on the territory.
Water being essential to the survival of all living beings, it remains essential to take care of it! A small simple daily gesture can help significantly reduce the consumption of drinking water by households on the territory. Overconsumption of water can lead to a degradation of water quality and is a waste to the detriment of sustainable and responsible management.
Note that watering of flowers and gardens is still allowed if done manually.
