Zero tolerance with the watering ban in Rosemère

In Rosemère, the source of water supply is the Mille-Îles River, which flows from the great basin of the Great Lakes, which, unfortunately, is experiencing an exceptionally low level this year.  It is important to also notice that the low local precipitation recently experienced has no influence on the level of the Mille-Îles River.

In order to maintain water quality, the current river conditions required Rosemère authorities to take water from the surface 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 was therefore necessary to reduce the consumption of drinking water and to respect the watering ban. The city announced that is counting on the citizen’s cooperation but warned of increased surveillance on the territory and fines for non-compliance.

“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.” Announce the Rosemère municipal administration.
