  • Ontarians currently use about 267 litres of water per capita per day, which is nearly twice as much as other countries with similar standards of living such as Germany, the United Kingdom and the Netherlands.
  • Pumping & distributing water to homes and business and treating water and wastewater makes up one-third to one- half of a municipal governmnent's total electrical use, which is double that of other municipal costs such as streetlighting.
  • Canadian surveys have consistently shown that as the percentage of metered homes in a community increases, water use decreases.  In municipalaties that use metered water charges, the average daily consumption is 263 litres per person, while in municipalaties that charge a flat rate, the corresponding figure is 76 % higher, or 464 litres per person.
